Sean Chow

Born and raised in the Bay Area, Sean Chow has spent over a decade working as a startup consultant and social entrepreneur. While attending SF Cooking School, Sean’s passion for food and social impact inspired him to found Oakland Bloom, a nonprofit food business training program that helps refugee and immigrant chefs in Oakland start their own food businesses. He’s also worked as a cook for Bay Area favorites like Nopalito, Hawker Fare, and Pizzaiolo. As a self-proclaimed workaholic, when Sean isn’t cooking, he actively works on various business and community-based projects in Oakland, including opening a new bar and restaurant in Old Oakland as its Executive Chef and Co-Owner.
