Hey, I’d like to welcome you to another episode of Mission Matters. My name is Adam Torres, and I’m so happy to announce that we’re at the Korea conference in Marina del Rey, California. And I’m so excited to have Jenny Chu on the show today to talk about the Korea conference. First, Jenny, I just want to say welcome and thank you for having us.
Thank you. Thanks for inviting me for your interview. Oh, thank you. So maybe just start by just telling us a little about the Korea conference. Actually Korea conference was not made artificially because I’ve been hosting my annual holiday party for many years. So since 2006. Wow. Yeah. I, I have held my annual holiday party every year since 2006, and then with my closest circle of friends, and then a lot of them influential industry leaders, then as you know, the Israel conference, it’s a lot of results among the, the Jewish community, and then they bring startups from From Israel, and then they develop innovative companies into the U.
S. Yeah. So, through my party you know, many years, we have created similar results. What Israel conference has created. Wow. So, you know, one of my friend told me, why don’t you just put the name on your, on your yearly holiday party? Yeah. So. That’s why I gave it a name as a Korea Conference. So that’s how Korea Conference started.
So it’s based upon friendship and human relationships and trust, love. So our genesis is not… Dry, hard business mind, more like a friendship and human connections. So that’s you know, that’s absolutely different to our conference from, you know, other lots of conferences. Well, Jenny, I have to just say I’m amazed and impressed because I don’t know too many individuals who their, their holiday party could turn into this.
The audience doesn’t see this yet, but we’ll be shooting some other content and it’s quite amazing. Like these, these leaders have come over from all around to celebrate the success and to also to, to promote and and to come together in this community. So I think it’s amazing. Exactly. So everybody’s here from Korea, Europe and Silicon Valley, San Diego and East coast.
They will come here because to support me, because, you know, they also value the human relationships, and then friendships, love. So, that’s our genesis. You know, we all carry, you know, these human connections together that I think success will follow as a by product. That’s wonderful. So I will tell you, I know that you have a speech coming up later on.
We won’t keep you too long. I know you got a lot to do, but I definitely appreciate you coming on here and making some time for us. So thank you for coming on. Thank you so much. Thank you. Wonderful.
