How uHoo started
The idea for uHoo started as a conceptual idea to solve a serious problem that Dustin Jefferson S. Onghanseng has been facing. Dustin who has suffered from hay fever (rhinitis) since childhood, realized that air quality made a difference between “getting by” and feeling healthy. Suffering from bad air quality in Hong Kong led him down a path of research and discovery.
Dustin teamed up with electrical engineer Brian Lin, an asthma sufferer, who also happens to be his MBA classmate from HKUST. They pitched uHoo and won a number of awards from MBA business plan competitions from Bangkok and Shanghai to Hong Kong and Portland Oregon. Seeing that the idea has legs, both Dustin and Brian, dropped their classes in June 2014 and incorporated uHoo in August 2014.
