New Memphis Institute says
Join us on Monday, February 15, 2016 from 6:00pm - 7:30pm for a Conversation with Wei Chen.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

That’s what Wei Chen has been asking himself since he came to the United States at age 24. An entrepreneur, record-setting pilot, and self-proclaimed “Big Dreamer,” Chen has lived a life outside his comfort zone.

After earning his MBA from the University of Memphis, Chen founded Sunshine Enterprise, Inc., a distributor of construction and industrial equipment, as just a one-man shop. Today he employs 400 people around the US and he was named 2007 Executive of the Year by the Memphis Business Journal. He is also the first Chinese citizen to circumnavigate the globe in a single-engine plane.

At this event, a conversation with SweetBio co-founder and Embarj grad Kayla Rodriguez, Chen will share the story of his success and what he’s learned along the way. He will challenge attendees to identify a “Big Hairy Audacious Goal,” and help them plan to accomplish it through focus and discipline.

Chen will be introduced by David Waddell, President and CEO of Waddell & Associates, Inc., a premiere wealth strategy firm in Memphis.
