Here’s how Heussaff survived his failures to become a successful digital entrepreneur.
Erwan Heussaff was only 22 years old when he decided to quit his job overseas and return to the Philippines to put up his restaurant business.
Born to a French father and a Filipina mother, Heussaff opened his cocktail bar in 2013, which was the first of its kind in the country in Bonifacio Global City.
The business was so successful that Heussaff started getting offers to open more restaurant outlets. Seeing the potential growth in the mid-income market, he thought that he should focus on high-end, boutique restaurant concepts.
Soon after the success of his first restaurant, Heussaff, who graduated in France with an international business degree in hospitality, started developing new concepts and expanded to as many as eight restaurants.
