Andre Lee | Xinova Innovation Banking and Development

Andre has the unique ability to see emerging opportunities, understand how to design new fundamental operating systems with transformative impact, and mobilize the right people, partners, and financial resources to create new high-value, high-impact ventures.

Andre is the founder of the Innovation Banking team at Xinova.  His career has spanned cross-border business in Asia, North America, and Europe combining investment banking, capital markets, start-ups, invention development, new products, intellectual property and transactional experience in 10+ industries. This has equipped him with a unique ability to invent tomorrow’s markets and businesses and transform those ideas into reality.

As a young investment banker in Asia at Lehman Brothers and later at Peregrine, he pioneered and built the Asian bond market from the ground up, building it into a globally distributed, multi-functional business that covered trading, sales, foreign exchange, derivatives, project finance, and corporate finance. Grasping the early promise of the internet and its impact on finance, he devised a new business model around creating an on-line capital raising and credit-based derivatives transaction system, building the first platform capable of designing a new financial instrument and shepherding it from origination to primary market syndication to secondary trading at 01 Inc

At Intellectual Ventures he co-founded the Invention Development Fund with Edward Jung to form the world’s first global inventor network, applying his cross-border, startup, and financial expertise to the world of intangible assets. Andre has invented new business model platforms and financial instruments such as collateralized product development financing loans, personal equity instruments, syndicated innovation loans, and “just in time” micro-financing.
