At age 11, Daren Tsui and his family left Taiwan and settled in Eugene, Oregon. At the time, Tsui’s only knowledge of English was how to sing “Bingo.” Tsui graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Industrial Engineering and became involved early on with the commercialization of the Internet. Prior to founding mSpot in 2004, a company that sells customizable ringtones and streams movies and videos, Tsui co-founded two other companies in the mobile technology field.
