Hans and Peter met and became friends whilst studying at the University of California, Berkeley.
Back in Hong Kong, Peter approached Hans with an idea on how to use technology to solve an annoyance he was facing at restaurants. He hated having to decide what to eat. They decided that together, they would solve this problem.
