As a successful entrepreneur, Hourt has embraced his independence without giving up his culture’s traditional family values. His story is a tale of the true American Dream. Hourt was born in a refugee camp on the border of Thailand and Cambodia after his parents fled the brutality of the Khmer Rouge. Once his family was sponsored by the Lutheran church to bring them to the United States, they moved into low-income housing in the Washington D.C. area. Eventually, his parents saved enough money to open several businesses, which eventually sparked his interest in also pursuing his own entrepreneurial journey. He thrives in his love for technology, and as Hourt continues on his entrepreneurial journey, he hopes that it will help to leave a lasting legacy for his family.
