BK Lee

President Korea

I created my first start up company during my college years partly out of curiosity and mainly to make my living.

Since then, never been employed by anyone, I have lived as an individual investor and entrepreneur, creating 3 start ups, acquiring 2 publicly listed companies, and investing in several dozens of companies.

One of them once became the fastest growing companies in its market value among KOSDAQ listed companies. Going through many failures and successes, I realized that fundamentals and defensibility of the company is by far important than anything else.

Even though speed and execution to support fast follower strategy were the main drivers of most Korean companies in the past, I am finding more and more companies cannot survive without core capabilities based on distinctive technologies.

Xinova’s business model caught my eyes instantly because I believed that it can provide the very unique value proposition with many Korean companies, in need of finding good technologies or business models.

It is also very well suited for global trend where top talents do not work for one company for long any longer and local companies always want those global talents.

My strong motivation to be part of Xinova was to create another very successful company commercially with a help of Xinova’s global network.

When I was a college student, I was honored to become a member of Korean national yacht team in 88 Olympics. I learned at that time how one local team with a big gap to global level can be growing so fast to the extent that nobody initially could ever imagine.

One of the secrets was the infusion of global level of skills invited from abroad. I would like to create a similar leap frog for the commercial success of the companies with Xinova.
