Born in Hong Kong, James Chen is the third generation in a family of successful businessmen and entrepreneurs, having learnt his trade at the feet of his father and grandfather. In 2011, he set up the charity Vision for a Nation in Rwanda with the aim of providing nationwide access to eye care and affordable glasses to a country of twelve million people. A stunning success, eye care services are now available to all and 2 million people will have received a vision screening by the end of 2017. In 2016, he launched Clearly, a global campaign to enable access to glasses for everyone in the world. His ambition is that if a human is to set foot on Mars in the years ahead, everyone should be able to see it.
