Founder and CEO of Sorority China
Michelle Li is the Founder and CEO of Sorority China. Born in Beijing, China and transplanted to the opposite end of the world to Eugene, Oregon, at a young age she experienced the diverse and polar opposite lifestyles of the East and West. After university in the US where she was a member of a sorority, she returned back to China to begin her career in the corporate world. Ten years later when she dreadfully blew out the candles on her 30th birthday cake, Michelle began the current and most exhilarating phase of her life. Entrepreneurship in China has brought her more wrinkles and sleepless nights then imagined, and finding the right people, partners and projects to work on have been more of a long marathon then simply business. However, her belief in the opportunity and freedom a young woman should have while working and living in China has been her driving passion for Sorority China.
