ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT: Let’s Vietnam 2016 Alumni Start Up TOHE USA
Student Exchange Vietnam is proud to announce the start-up business of our two beloved alumni Blake Phillips and Reilly Butz from Let’s Vietnam 2016 (Vietnam Scholars Program) with University of Findlay (Ohio, U.S.A.). Let’s Vietnam is a 3-week-4-city study in Vietnam tour designed by SE Vietnam to provide a more complete picture of Vietnam through 3 lenses: culture, economy and nature. During, the program, Blake and Reilly visited Tòhe JSC and were inspired by their innovative and creative business model. After returning to the U.S., the two co-founded Tòhe USA, the North American distributor for Tòhe JSC. Tòhe USA commits to inspire the child artist in every one with unique line of products that all feature amazing children’s artistic creativity and to encourage everyone to express their creativity. Not stopping there, Tòhe USA heavily supports helping those in need. 10% of our profits go back to Tohe’s foundation that provide free weekly creative art playgrounds to “preserve” and encourage the playfulness within little kids, especially disadvantaged kids.
