About the Speaker
Kenshi Arasaki, Co-Founder
Prior to co-founding A Thinking Ape with Wilkins Chung and Eric Diep, Kenshi was a software engineer at Amazon where he focused on scalability solutions. He had an intuition that told him he needed to go and venture on his own, and he moved to the Bay Area where he was chosen to go through the Y Combinator program. Since then, with ambition, determination, and love for what they do, Kenshi and his team went on to build one of the highest grossing companies on the App Store. He was recently named one of Canada’s Top Young Entrepreneurs of the Year by FuEL Awards.
