Simon Yu

CEO & Co-Founder at StormX, Inc.

Simon started his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 19. After his family declared bankruptcy, he was forced to drop out of college at the University of Washington and find a full-time job to pay for rent and food. His full-time wage was still not enough for him to go back to school so he started selling Korean tacos out of his apartment to students studying late night on campus. The tacos went viral, and he was able to start a food truck with two friends after returning and graduating with a full-time scholarship. He quickly turned and scaled that business into a $500,000 business with ten employees in less than two years before joining Calvin at StormX. During his time at StormX, Simon has helped grow revenue more than 800%, user growth of 3000%, and raised funding to scale a small start-up started in a dorm room to a seven-person company. He is a visionary who is able to see the long-term potential in every aspect of scaling a multi-billion dollar business opportunity.
