The YFind Story: From Idea to Acquisition

A Fireside Chat with Melvin Yuan
Description
Enjoy an evening of conversations over snacks and tea with Melvin Yuan. Find out about YFind Technologies - from the startup’s beginnings in Singapore, till it’s acquisition by NYSE-listed Ruckus Wireless in 2013.

Founded in late 2010 by Melvin and his two co-founders, YFind was an indoor positioning company at the cusp of the revolution in location based marketing and analytics.

The company raised US$1.18M from venture capital firms Innosight Ventures and Walden International. It went on to expand into the US before its eventual acquisition by the Silicon Valley-based supplier of advanced wireless systems.
