Minha Kim, PhD, Founder & CEO
After spending a decade as a communication professor and political scientist specializing in social network theories, Minha shifted her profession to an entrepreneur to establish a startup envisioning humanistic IT. She founded A POCO in 2015, modeling humanistic IT to advocate human’s creative knowledge and free will to deal with the seemingly robot-dominant shift of tech paradigm. Now, focusing more on humanistic networks, she founded GleeNet in Seattle and has geared towards building a core identity of the company. She released a Q&A based social network app called Blue Carpet where users can ask paid questions to peers and a cash amount is directly deposited into a bank account of the recipient through the app. Her doctoral dissertation on social network theories submitted to the University of Manchester received the Arthur McDougall Best Dissertation Prize from the UK's Political Studies Association.
