[TMTpost’s new column Photo Gallery aims to record individuals and entrepreneurs in the Internet industry: whether young ambitious entrepreneurs who have just found their place in the world of business, star investors who walk through different venues, programmers who spend hours of time writing codes in front of the computer screen, or Internet operators, geeks, even delivery guys…It is their collective efforts and devotion that constitute the Internet world we live in right now, so their moments are worth recording, and remembering. Photos don’t lie, but they don’ tell the whole truth; photos are free, but they are also full of traps. Therefore we present the images we see, and let you have your own understanding of these individuals.]
In Zheng’s perspective, he isn’t really entering an entrepreneurial journey. During his childhood, Zheng developed strong interest in airplanes. When he was a teenager, he even started to make his own plane models and opened his model store. Naturally, he began to teach about plane models after he entered his mid-life. Zheng literally built his life around airplanes, whether as a personal hobby or a professional career path. In Taiwan, his career has encountered many ups and downs for the fact that he has earned himself plenty of awards and appraisals but also gone through those days during which he almost went broke.
After 3 years of market research in Beijing, this 62-year-old man from Taiwan, decided to bring his project 35 years in the making to this capital city of China. Zheng believed that in Beijing he could once again achieve his own value, and he told TMTpost his very own stories.
