Founder & CEO, Topl
Kim is the Founder and CEO of Topl. After growing up in South Africa during a time of political and economic turmoil, she traveled to some of the most remote places of the world, working with underprivileged global citizens in whatever capacity was needed. Kim spent time with various NGO’s in 18 developing countries to support the rebuilding and strengthening of communities by implementing new forms of technology. She has since given numerous talks around the world about the power of technology leapfrogging. As a 2020 graduate, Kim was also the first student at Rice University to simultaneously complete a Masters in Economics and Ph.D. in Statistics. While at Rice, Kim met the other co-founders of Topl. They united around a common global mindset and willingness to sacrifice personal gain for building a better world.
