Min-Liang Tan grew up in Sin­ga­pore, and grad­u­ated from the Na­tional Univer­sity Of Sin­ga­pore’s Fac­ulty Of Law. He prac­tised law for two years as an ad­vo­cate and so­lic­i­tor for the Supreme Court Of Sin­ga­pore, but says that he was “al­ways a gamer first and a lawyer sec­ond”. Af­ter a trip to Korea to wit­ness the nascent pro­fes­sional gam­ing scene first­hand, Tan set­tled down in San Fran­cisco, where he and a friend, Robert Krakoff, de­vel­oped a mouse known as Boom­slang and founded Razer. In March 2015, Tan was ap­pointed as a board mem­ber of the In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Of­fice Of Sin­ga­pore.
