      About Simon Tian
      Founder, Neptune

      Simon Tian was born in Montreal, Quebec, in 1994. In 2011, Simon graduated from Jean de la Mennais College in La Prairie, QC and enrolled in Marianopolis College in Westmount, QC, taking up the study of Pure & Applied Sciences.

      One year later, at the age of 18, Simon had an immense interest in technology, so he decided to found Neptune in October 2012, with the aim of creating innovative products to enrich people's lives through the power of technology, superior design, and compelling value. Operations officially began in November 2012.

      In November 2013, Neptune announced its first product, the Neptune Pine smartwatch, through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Within 27 hours, the campaign reached its funding goal of $100,000, ultimately raising over $800,000 in total over the course of 30 days. Simon's story was covered by multiple major news outlets worldwide, including CNN, FOX, Time Magazine, Discovery Channel, Boston Globe, Huffington Post, Business Insider, Globe & Mail, CBC, CTV, The Gazette, Daily Mail, and many more.
