Michael Yin

Dr Michael Yin Xinyi made news with his entrepreneurial achievements whilst he was still a PhD student with NUS School of Computing.

Together with another student, he set up Mozat Pte Ltd, a start-up dealing with mobile technology. The company graduated from SoC Incubation Centre in late 2005, and it was employing some 20 staff in Singapore and Shanghai by 2006.

Michael’s success in growing Mozat Pte Ltd did not go unnoticed. On several occasions, the local media, including The Business Times, published reports on how Michael used mobile technology that he had developed to set up a thriving business.

Michael came to Singapore from Shanghai in 2001 to further his studies with NUS School of Computing. He received his PhD in 2007.
