CTO/co-founder of Ecomedes
Hung Vo is the Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Ecomedes. After one unsuccessful professional kickboxing bout, Hung quickly changed careers and earned his Electrical Engineering degree. He escaped the Minnesota winters to be a part of the Silicon Valley tech scene and went on to run the development team for Hyperion/Oracle financial planning applications. Although Hung would rather be racing at Laguna Seca Raceway, he spends his spare time enjoying the simpler things in life: a good wine bottle from Howell Mountain, a cheese plate, and time with his family.
