As the founder & CEO of Shakr.com, David Lee and his 15-strong team are making great video possible for everyone. With offices in both Seoul and San Francisco, Shakr has raised over $3M in seed and Series A funding from investors including Silicon Valley-based 500 Startups, Korea’s largest internet company, NHN, and the venture capital arm of POSCO.
As a big believer in making great video accessible to everyone, David previously launched Wetoku, powering premium video interview content for Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere report from 2008 through 2010. His first exposure to entrepreneurship was in 1994, when he co-founded Avenir Internet Solutions. Avenir was an online platform that facilitated the e-barter exchange of excess inventory between large corporations such as GE and Siemens. In 1998, NASDAQ-listed ITEX Corporation acquired a majority stake in Avenir.
