Topic: "Raising Money The First Time - It's About What You Don't Say."
John Sung Kim is a tech entrepreneur from San Francisco and is the founder of Five9 (valued at over $1.3 Billion on NASDAQ) and DoctorBase (which he sold to Kareo). He currently splits his time between the USA and the CIS region.

"I've gotten extremely lucky in my career. Having some super smart friends in the Bay Area, we were able to create Five9 (NASDAQ: FIVN) which I seed-funded with 6 (very maxed out) credit cards. Our second startup DoctorBase (acquired by Kareo) was in the incredibly difficult digital healthcare space where we ended up with 7 million patients and about 13,000 doctors before calling it a day. We just started our 3rd - JetBridge.com - to make complicated communications technology like Five9 and InsideSales consumer-friendly.

I HAVE BEEN A PAID ADVISOR FOR:
LGC Wireless (acquired by ADC) (pre-acquisition)
Qualys (NASDAQ: QLYS) (pre-IPO)
RingCentral (NYSE: RNG) (pre-IPO)
Odesk (merger w/ Elance) (pre-merger)
6connect (funded by Hummer Winblad) (pre-funding)
M5 Networks (acquired by ShoreTel) (pre-acquisition)

HOBBIES:
I love building useful things with my friends. Also, I could eat a pint of ice cream every night. I don't, but still. I could.
