We are excited to announce that Dulwich Pudong is partnering with The Hurun Report for Dulwich Horizons 2022! Over the course of the next few months our Senior School students will have exclusive opportunities to meet and learn from some of the most dynamic entrepreneurs in China.
The first event on January 24 will feature the founder of The Hurun Report, Mr. Rupert Hoogewerf. Mr. Hoogewerf launched Hurun in 1999 and has built it into one of the most respected media companies in China.
He will share his personal story of successful entrepreneurship with some of our Senior School students in a roundtable discussion. He will also share insights gained over the last two decades spent working with some of China’s most dynamic entrepreneurs addressing the question: what kind of educational preparation does it take to succeed in the wider world these days?
