Jeffrey Lee has been involved in technology venture capital and entrepreneurship for 20 years, primarily focused on North Asia. In 2005, he co-founded NLVC, which focuses on early stage technology investment in China. At Northern Light, Jeff chairs the investment committee and oversees strategic planning, investor relations, and value-add activities for the portfolio.

Previously Jeff worked in strategic and product marketing at Agilent Technologies Wireless Semiconductor Division, the predecessor of Broadcom Limited (NASDAQ:AVGO), working on front-end RF components for high speed wireless networks.

Earlier in his career, Jeff co-founded an early stage venture fund focused on South Korea, Newton Technology Partners. Jeff began his career in TMT corporate advisory at Salomon Smith Barney and Jardine Fleming, a Hong Kong-UK based merchant bank.
