When Nguyen was 15, his family moved to the U.S. from Saigon. After graduating from the University of Portland with a major in computer engineering and a minor in entrepreneurship, he took a job at a nearby software development company before launching Virtualosity Solutions, an IT consulting company, the following year. Nguyen credits his inspiration to go into business to his parents who "were able to use their entrepreneurship skills to create jobs, to contribute to society, and help people."
