Gaming fans can quickly identify with the name Min-Liang Tan. One fact about this business icon is that gaming was not his first venture in life. Tan is a lawyer, but he decided to quit the profession to get into the gaming world. Therefore in 2005, in partnership with Robert Krakoff, he founded Razer. In the beginning, all that this renowned businessman wanted was to share his gaming passion with the world.

Min-Liang Tan wanted to get into the business as a competitor to the existing gamers. Today, Razers company has taken over the gaming world when the company was dealing in just three gaming products; software, hardware and a payment wallet. The first product that Razer, under the leadership of Min-Liang Tan, put on the market was the Boomslang Mouse. Visit this page for more information.

The features of the Boomslang Mouse

The Razer CEO developed the Boomslang Mouse with one aim, to bring improvement into speed and precision. Upon launching the mouse, Tan became more aggressive, and ever since, the success the company enjoys today can be attributed to Tan’s aggressive nature.
