UD grad and founder of multiple firms to provide education in entrepreneurship and resources for startups
When Sean Wang came to the United States in 1985, currency exchange restrictions in China limited him to exchange a maximum of $50 U.S. from Chinese Yuan.
After spending $30 his first night in New York, the young Ph.D. student went to the bus station to buy a ticket to Delaware. He was $2.50 short but fortunate enough to cross paths in the station with another University of Delaware grad student from China who made up the difference.
Now a successful entrepreneur who has launched more than a dozen tech and medical device startups, Wang knows a lot more about finances than merely how to get a short-term loan to buy food until his funding came through. And he is dedicated to giving back to the country and the community where he got his start.
