CO-FOUNDER & CEO

err

Bo is an engineer and a leader. He has been leading world-class engineering teams at some of the most recognizable technology companies (Facebook, Dropbox, Uber, Lime) for over a decade. Besides software engineering, his most recent leadership role at leading micromobility company Lime exposed him to the world of hardware and supply chain. It gave him an opportunity to tap into his EE background and expand his product thinking when it comes to finding a solution for a user problem. 2020 is a special year for Bo. Covid-19 struck him in a way which compelled him to do something to empower people to live healthier and happier. That's how Circolo got started.

Bo is also a dedicated soccer player. The most memorable moment was in 2018, when he scored a championship goal in the last minute in an annual soccer tournament in the Bay Area. He is currently undertaking the "Gaining 6-pack" challenge under the guidance of Katherine Yip, astounding athlete and co-founder.

Cheng is an explorer and life-time learner. He deliberately chose opportunities that would widen his exposure to different challenges, both technically and organizationally, by working at Plusmo, LinkedIn, Uber, Amazon and Scale AI. He started his career writing a web browser on feature phones (yes, those Nokia bricks) and his most recent role is leading infrastructure and data teams at Scale AI, which powers datasets for some of most complicated AI problems we have today. He experienced firsthand how a 50 person startup, a 1,000 person unicorn and a 500,000 person industrial giant can innovate and fail.

Cheng is an outdoor enthusiast and has skied at more than 30 ski resorts. He believes strength and endurance training are essential for people who want to explore the natural wonders of our blue planet.
