My first start-up Sendit was the first European company to be bought by Microsoft.

As co-founder and CTO of the smartphone maker i-mate we floated on the London Stock Exchange with a value of $400M USD after 5 years. Currently I help Vertu build luxury smartphones as Head of ODM, and run the R&D satellite office in Taipei.
