Winners of 18th Entrepreneur Of The Year awards embody 'unstoppable' spirit and grit

SINGAPORE (Oct 14): David Lee, CEO of IYUNO Media Group, was once told that his business — providing dubbing and subtitling services for movies and videos — would not succeed in the US, especially since it was run by a non-American.

“Everyone told me, ‘no way an Asian businessman can make it in the US’,” he recalls in an interview with The Edge Singapore. Lee went ahead anyway, opening IYUNO’s US office within three days. The US business has grown from strength to strength. “I am a believer in instinct,” he says.
