Jeffery Wang 王耀睿
Jeffery is a strong believer in the transformational power of disruptive innovation, which is not just about innovating “more”, but innovating differently, boldly, and frequently against the mainstream. Jeffery is fascinated by a variety of B2B business models, including infrastructure, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and marketplace, as well as products involving hardware (often in combination with software). Jeffery is committed to helping entrepreneurs experiment more effectively in the crucial early stages of their ventures, to lay the foundation for scale and sustainable profitability.
Prior to joining DCM, Jeffery has worked in consumer electronics (Microsoft), industrial goods (ESG Valve), management consulting (BCG), and SaaS (own startup). At Microsoft, Jeffery worked as a program manager on Surface Book 2, managing issues and projects associated with manufacturing and supply chain. During his time at HBS, Jeffery started a software company that provided SaaS to service businesses, enabling them to train their distributed workforce in a bottom-up, video-based, and digital manner. The diverse work experience across big corporation, SMB, and startup gives Jeffery a deeper understanding of different business personas, a more versatile set of mental models, and the ability to quickly learn, adapt, and innovate.
As an engineer deep down, Jeffery believes Total Life Awesomeness (TLA) = Length of Life * Average Daily Awesomeness. On one hand, Jeffery is interested in living longer, which involves skiing, horse riding, and a variety of watersports (perks from growing up in Qingdao). On the other hand, he enjoys singing, travelling, gaming, reading, and wine tastings, all of which have made his daily life meaningfully more enjoyable.
