I’m Vu Nguyet Anh – Founder/CEO of Rudicaf – the most prestigious Dating service brand in Vietnam.
Actually, I graduated in Television Director major from Hanoi academy of Theatre and Cinema. I had more than 10 years of experience in Television/Communication industry and that’s why until today, I can use a lot of skills and the large network in this industry for my current business.
In 2011, I started my business for the first time with Dating service – a very new industry in Vietnam. Of course, it was not related to my forte (Television/Communication) at all and it was a big challenge to me. Furthermore, I borrowed a loan from the bank to start my business which was very risky.
After more than a year, because of lacking experience in finance management and especially the bad timing of this business, I had to close my company and went to work for other companies trying to pay back the money to the bank.
4 years after, while I was working in another industry, I still kept myself updated with Dating service industry to develop the insight and catch a good timing to revive my business.
In 2016, I decided to quit my current job and back to my start-up dream with a new dating service brand: Rudicaf. Luckily, this time, the timing is much better because today, start-up becoming a hot trend in Vietnam and we have received a lot of support. It’s also easier to meet potential investors, raise funds, do branding for free or with low fees in many big channels… and, especially, the customers are now ready to pay high fees for high quality dating service.
With such favorablec onditions, after a short time since the service was launched, I was awarded as the best Start-up woman of the year of 2016 and Rudicaf was ranked at 4th in Top 20 Favorite Start-ups in Vietnam. I consider this the very first success as well as motivation, but at the same time, the pressure to push myself try harder and harder. Since then, Rudicaf keeps appearing on the biggest and most prestigious TV channels, newspapers and magazines in Vietnam. Besides, because I have always focus on creating high quality social network, it turns out to support me a lot in my business.
So, today, in Woomentum, I’m willing to share with you all my experience about communication, start-up and everything related…
I will be available on 31th May and 1th June from 2:30pm to 3pm SGT to talk here on Woomentum!
