The Birth of RTS Labs
There is one mistake everyone makes that never fails to cause panic. In an instant, you regret every decision you’ve ever made and wonder how you could do something so foolish ... You’ve accidentally deleted a file you still need. I did not grow up innately skilled with computers. In college, when I was an electrical engineering major, I deleted a file I’d been working on for a few days. I was in the middle of freaking out when my girlfriend, a computer science major (and
fast, the automobile industry doesn’t evolve rapidly, but the technology industry is different today than it was yesterday. Even before I got into computers, I loved building and working at a fast pace. When I started following the path of computers, data, and technology, I envisioned working in a fast-paced, highly technical environment, surrounded by really smart people so I could just soak in their intellect. Eventually, I realized that if I wanted to work in a place like that, I would have to build it myself.

I started one other company before RTS Labs. We were a data company with three founders, and though we had a good client base, the company faltered after one of the founders had to move back to China. It was discouraging, but that was the seed that RTS Labs came from. I saw what worked at my first company and what didn’t, and I set about creating a place I knew would succeed.
