Upcoming SUNY Canton guest speaker Yang Ni’s most recent international business adapts to the one-world economy by creating mobile apps for traditionally printed publications.
The cofounder and CEO of Inforgence America LLC, will give a presentation “In Pursuit of Dreams in a Curved and Flat World,” at 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 18, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. The event is free and open to the public.
“Our business education and legal studies programs place a great emphasis on international entrepreneurship and relations,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “Yang Ni has had phenomenal success launching and maintaining businesses that rely on international partnerships between the United States, Europe and China. There is much to be learned from his success.”
Inforgence America is a digital publishing platform technology company that provides services to deliver magazines, books, newspapers, and other traditionally printed media on mobile devices, including Apple’s iPads and iPhones. The company pushes the boundaries of the technology to integrate video and audio effects within a well-designed user interface. Ni founded the company in 2010, and has launched more than 30 unique apps in both Chinese and American marketplaces.
Ni is the founder and chairman of several other companies, including CALNY Ventures, Inc., which helps entrepreneurs capitalize on international technology opportunities. “The world economy is rapidly becoming unified,” Kennedy said. “Startups in the United States rapidly must reach overseas to succeed. Each of Yang Ni’s businesses integrates and capitalizes upon the one-world economy.”
Among the other companies that Ni is involved with are Pacific Life Sciences Co. Ltd, which provides research and development testing for multinational pharmaceutical conglomerates, including Pfizer, Inc., and Merck and Co. He’s the general manager of the clean energy solution company Qiaoyang Technology Development Co., Ltd. and was the co-founder and president of Pharmaneer Holdings, Inc. In the past, he was executive vice president of Transnational Ventures, LLC, where he worked to advise both American and Chinese clients.
He has several major publications in the areas of globalization, law, and international relations and has previously presented to the New York State Bar Association on international law, among many other business, legal, and societal topics for a variety of audiences.
Ni earned his Juris Doctorate from Syracuse University College of Law and is a Ph.D. Candidate at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
