Simon Kuo

Kansas City, Missouri

I'm the founder of LightThread a boutique consulting company, Westside Studio a commercial photography studio and I'm a partner at Betablox an early stage startup accelerator.

I studied to be a scientist before doing a stint as a Fortune 60 company executive and leading ebusiness, strategy, web development and product management groups. I’ve funded, founded or advised numerous startups including Topchirp, Mobile Symmetry, ShowIgniter, HowtobeHenry.com, Cryptoempire, Coinplay.io, LearningJar.com and many others.

I sometimes wear suits with my ties.
