Cher Wang is a Taiwanese christian entrepreneur and co-founder of the smartphone maker, HTC Corporation and VIA Technologies. Wang is a devout Christian who preaches about Bible being the best book for management practice.
She teaches that one of the most important attributes an entrepreneur should possess is a vision, without which you will be destroyed. This is a lesson she learnt from the bible.
Wang was working in First International Computer moving bulky, heavy computers to client offices, when she had a vision of a better way of designing a computer that could fit in the palm of your hand. She embarked on that vision in 1997 and HTC Corporation was born.
In 2013 Forbes ranked her and her husband’s as Taiwan’s 13th richest people with a combined net worth of US$2.5 billion.Faith plays an important part in her life.
A Christian (like her husband), she said she belongs to no specific denomination but attends church whenever she can. Spirituality informs how she lives. “I feel everyone has their own faults,” she said. “We have to understand why people are like that — is it the environment or the background.” But it informs her work too. “Jesus also tells us you have to work hard, not be sluggish,” she said.
