China's 'face of Google' quits to offer angel funding to start-ups
Lee announced his plans - in good technological style - via his Twitter page, and apparently plans to offer angel funding to support the growth of new businesses.
The reasons for his departure from Google, other than to establish his own company, haven't been made clear, though the internet firm is currently struggling with censorship issues across mainland China.
It's interesting to note, however, that Lee's investment opportunities for these new technology companies arrived immediately after Apple and China Unicom announce the finalisation of a deal to bring the iPhone to the world's largest mobile user base.
Presumably, Lee will be limiting his funding opportunities purely to iPhone and/or smartphone start-ups, but clearly there's an opportunity for prolific Chinese mobile game developers to branch out with the help of the Taiwan born entrepreneur.
