When was ActioNet created?

ActioNet was created by our President & CEO, Ashley W.Chen, in 1998. She had a "dream to build something great." She was inspired by an enlightening piece written by a traditional Japanese philosopher that stated, "...action without vision is a nightmare, vision without action is only a daydream."
