Who Is Steve Tan?

Steve got his start in college when he began selling things on eBay in 2006. He did well enough to launch his own online store which began netting him $500K a month. But, by the time 2010 rolled around his ideas for startups faltered. He launched a cosmetic business and a business similar to Groupon in Shanghai. Both caused him to have to return to a job.

He worked in a company with his parents while he regrouped and began working on his next big idea. It was a smartwatch which he crowdfunded and launched in 2012. It still sells to this day, but the Kreyos was not the success he wanted. With his brother’s help, he was able to get back into e-commerce.
