Xian Xu, 28, China
Xian co-founded the Cuisines Sous Vide restaurant chain in China in March 2015 in a bid to tap into the lifestyle tastes of young middle class Chinese.
The chain utilises the "Sous Vide" method of cooking, a popular restaurant technique that involves cooking food slowly in airtight plastic bags at very low temperatures.
Xian's words of advice for anyone hoping to do a similar job: "Find the right partners and form your team, only by doing that, you can go far."
