Henry Kang
Editor, TypeZen.com: 'Going with the Flow in a Type A World'

In 2004, Henry began a spiritual journey that continues today. Having the lucky timing to invest in several successful internet ventures just before the Internet boom of 2000, his good fortune allowed him to lead a life free from the usual worries of money and "paying the bills". This freedom ultimately led him on a journey to seek meaning beyond material things. A luxury for which he is eternally grateful and fully appreciates. For it allowed him to pursue answers to some deepest questions in life. What is the meaning of life? What is my destiny? Where can I find lasting peace and contentment? Sparked by a nagging desire to find answers to these eternal philosophical and spiritual questions, he began traveling the world. With the support of close friends and family, he began to find answers in many forms and in many places. Ultimately he discovered "zen." As an Asian American much of his time was spent traveling throughout east Asia. He enveloped himself in the culture and history of China, Korea and Japan. In connecting with his Asian heritage he began to incorporate Asian philosophies into his life and business. This led to the formation of Ajia Group which is comprised of longtime friends family and business partners who are dedicated to investing in a "zen way." Henry has also dedicated himself to the study of "zen" and walking the enlightened path. He has befriended many zen masters along the way and has become a devoted practitioner of "zen daoism". Henry Kang began his career as a Wall Street executive which included stints at several major investment banks including JP Morgan Chase Capital and Veronis, Suhler Stevens & Associates in New York City. Driven by a passion for business he earned an MBA from Duke University and has decades of experience in Private Equity and Venture Capital investing. He launched his own investment firm 1999 acting as principal investor in several successful internet ventures.
