Esther Moon is responsible for investor relations at SparkLabs. She makes sure that all SparkLabs’ funds stay the course from planning to exit stage. She became a venture capitalist building on her own experience of founding a broad range of venture companies. She is also experienced in accelerating and coaching countless startup companies and is often referred to as an enthusiastic business coach who can even revive a dying company.
Prior to joining SparkLabs, she was in charge of performance directing at Troupe Jayou (Freedom), Troupe Gagyo (Bridge) and Seensee Company, as well as 16mm film directing at ShinCine Communications. She was also the director of “Singing In the Rain,” the first medium-scale musical created in Korea. Then she expanded her career into developing foreign language education programs for government officials and employees of public corporations and top-tier companies in Korea. The application that she developed to evaluate foreign language proficiency won industry accolades as a well-made prototype and was widely used at government agencies such as Incheon International Airport Corporation.
She went on to develop mobile broadcasting application algorithms for the first time in Korea and succeeded in obtaining related technology patents. In recognition of such achievements, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism appointed her as CT R&D Program Director. She has a vast experience in planning and vetting various R&D projects and owns a wide industry network, which enables her to effectively communicate with LP(limited partners) in identifying and investing in promising venture companies.
She entered Chung-Ang University Department of Theater and Film as top of the class and majored in contents directing in areas such as theater, musical, film and advertising. After serving as CMO of Pickupphone, she founded GNG COMPANY. Then she became CEO of KOOLVU and ventured into unchartered territory such as mobile film broadcasting. After renaming KOOLVU as China Stem Cell Research Center, she established a center in Beijing to facilitate collaboration between China and Korea in developing medical and beauty products.
