Mike Teshuba is the co-founder and chief technology officer at Mango Languages
, a Farmington Hills, Mich.-based provider of self-study language learning software that teaches practical conversational skills for the world's most in-demand languages.
Mike has been an entrepreneur ever since the age of 19, when he started his first business with his brother Jason, one of the co-founders of Mango. He has worked on a diverse array of projects including e-commerce, pharmaceuticals, content management systems, CRM systems, and many others.
He has a degree from Michigan State University in computer science engineering.
When Mike isn't geeking it out in front of his computer, he enjoys snowboarding, water sports, golf, poker, and a host of bar games. Being highly competitive and annoying, he loves to gloat when he defeats his opponent in whatever game he is playing. If you are his friend, he takes no greater pleasure than rubbing it in after he has defeated you. However, if Mike doesn't know you he acts really humble if he wins. Although he dishes it out, he has a bit of a harder time taking it. It really is fun to see him squirm in anguish after he has been defeated.
Mike recently married a Colombian woman and will soon be vacationing in Colombia to gain new cultural experiences to bring back to Mango. He's excited about this new phase in his life where he will have the opportunity to put all of the skills he has learned through Mango to use.
