A visionary entrepreneur sees mobile phone photos through a new lens—and lends perspective on her success.
No one expected to snap great photos with mobile phones when they first came out, but today, consumers take the quality of their selfies and vacation photos very seriously. The demand for images of ever-better quality is keeping Chan Li Han, CEO and co-founder of DynaOptics, very busy.
Chan spoke with Associations Now Brand Connection recently about how manufacturing in Singapore has helped her to pursue her passion to improve mobile phone photography.
How did your experience as an athlete influence the way you have run DynaOptics?
Li Han: One of the earliest lessons I learned as a national athlete was tenacity — pushing through even after it really hurt. Resilience plays a big part in a startup’s success, and yet it was important for me to know when to stop pushing. As I’ve grown as an entrepreneur, I’ve learned to close doors when it’s time to close them.
There’s wisdom in knowing when to keep on going. I’ve learned to listen very closely to what my gut says, to what trusted advisers and team members say, to what the market reality is, and then to choose focused actions powerfully given these inputs and a start-up’s limited resources.
