Rice Paper Scissors co-founders Valerie Luu and Katie Kwan serve up Vietnamese street food at pop ups and events all over San Francisco. Inspired by sidewalk dining in Vietnam, Valerie and Katie are committed to bringing Vietnamese culture to San Francisco, taking over streets with little red stools. You've eaten their food at Mojo Bicycle Cafe every Thursday, read about them in nearly every SF publication, and seen them on Anthony Bourdain's “The Layover”. We're particularly smitten with their feature in VICE's Fresh Off the Boat with Eddie Huang.
Valerie and Katie run every aspect of their business with tact: organizing pop ups and events, catering lunches, writing, staging photography, and managing interns. In the past two years, they've grown their scrappy startup into a legitimate business–and they're just getting started. Join us to hear Valerie and Katie discuss starting a business, creating community through food, and how to work hard while enjoying every minute of it.
Refreshments will be provided. Doors open at 6:15. Interview is from 7:00 to 8:00, with Q&A at the end.
