In Oct 2021, Phoebe Yung MPA ’14 embarked on an accidental entrepreneurial journey, starting a business called Doggy Day, a social platform that connects dogs with dog-loving neighbors.
“SIPA actually played a big part in my decision to take this leap of faith. A SIPA alum, an ex-World-Bank-turned-entrepreneur, invited me to join a business plan contest he was organizing. The experience gave me the inspiration and confidence to take the first step in starting my own venture. Quite frankly, if it wasn’t for the SIPA connection and consequently the contest, I would not be doing what I am doing today!”
