We are grateful to have Prof. Ji-Ren Lee, the Vice Chairman, and Ms. Alice Liu, the Deputy CEO of Chengzhi Educational Foundation to visit FTI office today. Prof. Lee had been Professor of Strategy and Management at National Taiwan University (NTU) for 25 years, and Independent Director in many top corporates.
“Thanks for the visit of Prof. Lee! Prof. Lee is not only well-known as the master of competitive strategy, but also my professor when I studied at NTU. Aside from focusing on corporate development related issues with his profound insight, Prof. Lee also contributes himself in rural education in Taiwan. I am very touched by the vision and passion of Chengzhi Education Foundation”, said Eric Lee, Founder & CEO of FTI.
“It’s always been a huge challenge to improve rural education, not to mention in the pandemic, the challenge has become even fiercer under the new normal. And I wanted to help. So right before the new semester began, I contacted Alice, who was my classmate at NTU, and asked if the schools might need the camera equipment for distance learning. Thanks for the opportunity and assistance they offer, we are able to contribute back to our community in commitment to support the education. In addition to Innex webcam series, we will also provide “Digital Table”, an innovative presentation solution for distance learning to teachers to enhance remote learning.
“Education is the foundation of national competitiveness, and the key to change children’s lives. Even as a startup company, we are striving to deliver prominent products and sustainable customer service, while we are also proud to be part of this community. By working with Chengzhi Educational Foundation, and organization like Junyi Academy, Teach For Taiwan, we wish ourselves contribute to society, support rural education, and create value and impact in a positive way at the same time.”
