Internet Mogul Dante Lee Opens Overseas Office in the Philippines! (7129 hits)

By Charlene Mikaelian:

Dante Lee, the 29 year old Internet media mogul who is the founder of Diversity City Media and the co-founder of Lee Moss Media, has officially launched his first overseas business venture. Lee has opened an office in downtown Manila, Philippines - the country's capital - for his newly formed subsidiary, Dante Lee International (DLI), which will house his newly acquired web property - Tagalog.com. He is planning to re-launch the site as an online dictionary, thesaurus, encyclopedia, and resource guide.

There are many dialects in the Philippines, but Tagalog is the official language spoken by over 100 million Filipinos worldwide. Lee's goal is for the site to be the ultimate resource for everything pertaining to the Philippines - how to speak the national language, how to travel there, what attractions to see, where to stay, where to shop, how to interact with the people, etc.

Lee comments, "I've traveled to many Asian countries including the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, and Thailand, to research potential international business opportunities. I chose the Philippines for my first venture because I believe that this market has the strongest potential for economic growth within the next 5-10 years."

Lee, who was recently featured on BET's The Mo'Nique Show with business partner William Moss, is planning for the new web site to go live by September 2011. "I hope I've inspired people," he says. "With 7 billion people worldwide and only 350 million in the United States, that means that 95% of all consumers on this planet live outside of the United States. It's time for entrepreneurs to start thinking outside the borders."

As the world's 12th most populous country, this third world nation is currently undergoing major development and modernization from local and foreign investors.
