Before this, Paul was the Founding CEO of BilltoMobile, where he raised $9.5 million and created the first-ever VC-funded spinout from a public Korean company called Danal. Paul sold BilltoMobile in 2010 in a profitable transaction for shareholders after signing the first-ever direct billing deals with major US mobile carriers (including Verizon) and establishing the company as a leader in the space.
