- Immigrant Entrepreneur Success Stories -

Our project partners are collecting video interviews of success stories told by immigrant entrepreneurs to encourage the learners in the entrepreneurship training. Let us introduce you Mai Phan, the Founder of PropL - Vietnamese entrepreneur in Oslo, Norway. Mai is the founder of PropL, an early-stage B2B HR tech start-up in Oslo, Norway. Originally from Vietnam, she took her Bachelor's in Business Administration in the U.S and Master's in Finance in the UK. Mai has lived and worked in Norway in the past 12 years. Her experience ranges from research and analysis in the power and gas sector, teaching young children and adults dance and fitness to entrepreneurship, technology and innovation. Mai is passionate about social impact and sustainability. Her start-up, PropL, builds job simulations to help job seekers find career and jobs that suit their skills and interests. Their vision is to reduce unemployment in Norway and combat biases and discrimination in a recruitment process. PropL has received grants from Innovation Norway and Oslo Municipality, and recently launched their Beta. In her start-up journey, Mai has learned many valuable lessons, but most importantly, learned about herself: her strengths, weaknesses and passion, and that failure is a part of the journey - you either win or you learn something new. Her advice to aspiring founders: believe in yourself and surround yourself with people who can inspire and support you. Not everyone would support your entrepreneurial journey. It will be tough and you will meet a lot of obstacles, so be sure to have the right support network around you.
