After working locally for Motorola and Foxconn, Abdala got his longtime friends together, and they decided to launch a company. The VSN Mobil team selected Peter Aloumanis, also a former ex-Motorola executive, as their CEO.
VSN Mobil’s 30 staff members collectively share more than 300 patents with their former employers. And they’ve started to snag many for VSN Mobil, on its software, optics, designs and battery life. The company has initial funding of $14 million with one major investor: Singapore-based Sai Kiang Soh, also known as Philip Soh, co-founder of Artivision Technologies.
