Meet the Founders
Dr. Feng and Dr. Tsai
Our story began as graduate students in the US from Taiwan. My husband, Dr. Feng, graduated from University of Rochester and I graduated from “The Ohio State University.” A tiny music box we bought in Austria was the seed that inspired our dream. From there, we decided to integrate our expertise in engineering and education to begin our product development journey. Our vision is “Using technology to connect people’s hearts.”
The CTO's Role in the Product Development Journey
I’m Dr. Feng, a firmware engineer who worked in San Jose, California in in the United States before inventing the Muro Box. I designed Muro Box, the world’s first app-controlled music box from scratch, because I hope it can play everyone’s unique memories. During this product development journey, I not only faced endless frustration but also found unexpected resources in Taiwan. Do you want to know why Muro Box is an incredible technology invention that has solved the 200 years old problem in music box industry? Welcome to read our stories to learn more about our endless experiments in hardware design, app development and production for bring Muro Box to life.
The CEO's Role in the Product Development Journey
I’m Dr. Tsai, an English teacher and academic English writing consultant before running the startup company with my husband, Dr. Feng. In our stories, you can find how we decided to run a startup company together with our different expertise: education and engineer. As a CEO, I had to take care of everything unrelated to engineering and technology in order to help Dr. Feng concentrate on solving the technical problems. My work duties included human resources, customer services, marketing, sales and public relations. These were new challenges to me, but I had to learn everything efficiently to help our company grow. Welcome to read our stories to see how we overcame various obstacles step by step when welcoming our first baby and first product to the world in the same year: 2018.
