Our mission is to make family gatherings more enjoyable for entrepreneurs and their immigrant parents.
Even as an only child of educated immigrant parents, James was really expected to do just one thing:
- To help his parents with the family business.
In his case, it was church – his father was a Christian minister.
- When it came to his own dreams, of course, James was expected to become a minister himself.
So, he did – because of a sense of calling towards bringing about more healing in the world.
- But, soon afterwards, he realized that, to achieve this, he needed to become an entrepreneur.
That is when new problems started to appear:
- How does he explain it to his parents – perhaps, more delicately, to his spouse’s parents?
Besides the fact that he is not technically making money nor particularly successful in the market, there are cultural things like:
- What does this mean for the family name?
- What did the immigrant parents make such a sacrifice for?
- This is not what James said to us when he wanted to marry our daughter, etc.
These would not be a problem if James did not care.
- But, he does.
That is how the new DREAMDAY came to be:
- A way to bring about inter-generational healing at venture-scale for immigrant entrepreneurs.
To make family gatherings more enjoyable for entrepreneurs and their immigrant parents.
For immigrant parents and the next generation to share a mutual respect for the pursuit of their own dreams.
Digital-first enablement of inter-generational and inter-cultural healing at venture-scale.
