Shums Kassam

Shums started his first company, Blynk, out of the Next 36 program in his 3rd year of Engineering Science. Two years later, he sold Blynk to Kik and went on to lead Kik’s bots platform. In 2018, he left Kik to found his next startup, Hatchways. Hatchways recently went through the Y-Combinator program (S19) and it focuses on helping new grads, self-taught programmers, and career shifters get their first job as a software engineer.
