Hoon Kim is founder and CEO of startup Keelo - https://keelo.com
 
Keelo is an app that helps keep its users fit. Hoon has a passion for long term health. Everything in the app is measured and scored. Keelo keeps people motivated, with the app recommending what workouts to do, geared towards health and strength. This is a project of passion for Hoon. The app was featured on Apple's App Store. Hoon talks about how as we age how to take care of yourself long term, he talks about a good goal for anyone is to be physically independent for as long as possible. Fitness classes can be expensive and Hoon wanted to create a service for everyone, income aside, creating an app at a price point anyone can afford. 
 
Hoon talks about what do people regret when they die, talking about family, risks and how to make an impact in the world. Hoon goes on to talk about passion and why he decided to leave Microsoft after 5 years, going to Stanford Business School. Hoon learned about entrepreneurship, how to start a company and the risks … from Hoon: "In entrepreneurship, there is no one to answer too."
 
Before Keelo, Hoon founded a restaurant gift card company, which he successfully exited to OpenTable.com.
