CEO & Co-Founder
Hi Right Now

Why do you wake up in the morning?

I wake up in the morning to spread the mission of Hi Right Now - empowering humanity to form deep meaningful connections!

Who do you look up to?

My parents. They’ve given me everything and always inspire me to keep pursuing my dreams.

What problem does you startup solve and how?

We solve the problem of networking. Networking is awkward and stressful. It’s hard to make genuine professional connections via existing platforms such as LinkedIn. Despite hundreds of communities that we’re a part of, meeting like-minded people consistently is like finding diamonds in a haystack. We solve this problem by making it easy and fun to actually meet like-minded professionals and form meaningful connections via quick 1 on 1 video chats.

What does 2030 look like if you succeed?

Hi Right Now will be the next professional network. It will be the central place where anyone from anywhere can discover truly meaningful connections and build community. Whatever they want to achieve and are going through, they will be able to have a conversation with the most like-minded people and share insights with them. At Hi Right Now, people will be guided to become better connectors and build social capital via an algorithm that understands their communication patterns and prioritizes offering value.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I like singing, dancing, and listening to funky poppy house with a touch of world, hitting the gym, walking all over the city, eating noodles, and traveling.
