James Lee is a well-known venture angel in Asia Pacific region. With his vision in technology development and life style trend, he has identified many young talents and helped them build world-class companies. In 2011, he was elected as one of the top 100 trustworthy angel investors in China.
James is also a venture traveler covering many exotic places like Tibet, Persia, Kashmir, Antarctica and Easter Island, etc. His photographic works of landscape, building and people taken on roads less traveled have been exhibited three times in Taipei.
Being a world venture traveler and angel, he is always trying to inject some positive energy to balance the general negative media coverage in Taiwan. Last year, inspired by a family friend Ivy Lin, James and his friends Chien-Fu Li, and Freda YiChung Ma have mobilized many other volunteers to work on a flash mob chorus project in the basement food court of Taipei 101 skyscraper. To their surprise, this June 15 Taipei 101 flash mob chorus performance has touched many hearts around the world.
James will share with TEDxTaipei the story behind the Surprise.
