REDWOOD CITY, CALIF. -- Jung Moon, an expert in Asia Pacific business relations, has joined Thinktomi, a Silicon Valley-based company delivering high-impact business and entrepreneurship education.
Mr. Moon joins Thinktomi as Managing Director for Asia-Pacific. He brings over a decade of trade experience between South Korea and Silicon Valley. As a Korean native that has lived for more than 20 years in the heart of Silicon Valley, Jung has helped deliver cross-border business and technology expansion between the United States and Korea.
"We are excited to have Jung on board to help us build the Korean market. He will be a tremendous asset in building and expanding our relationships with various organizations across South Korea, " said Thinktomi Founder and CEO Manoj Fernando.
Thinktomi has partnered with several government agencies and has provided business and entrepreneurship programs for several universities and companies visiting the Silicon Valley. Thinktomi will be opening an office in Korea in April 2015 and will be launching several education and acceleration programs to institutions across Korea.
"There are so many young innovators in South Korea that have groundbreaking ideas, but lack the knowledge or experience to turn them into thriving businesses," said Moon. "I am excited to join the diverse team at Thinktomi to bring more Silicon Valley entrepreneurial programs to Korea."
"Having a way of teaching up-to-date content, straight from Silicon Valley, to inventors around the world is a great opportunity," said Moon.
