Yunha Kim is the CEO and Founder of Simple Habit, a 5-meditation app for busy people that offers meditations for any situation or mood- including before a date, can’t sleep, or feeling nervous. These bite-sized, on the go meditations are guided by 100+ world-class meditation teachers.
Since launch, Simple Habit has inspired more than 2 million people from around the world to meditate. Simple Habit is recognized by Google Play as a best app of 2018. The app is also ranked #1 in the Apple Store. Simple Habit is backed by Y Combinator, New Enterprise Associates (NEA) and many prominent CEOs in Silicon Valley including Dropbox’s CEO Drew Houston and Gusto’s CEP Joshua Reeves.
Kim began her career in investment banking and built her first startup Lockjet when she was 23 years old. Kim began to mediate to help manage stress of startup life. The idea to build a more diverse, practical meditation app came to Kim when she was pursuing her MBA at Stanford. She dropped out of Stanford after one semester to build Simple Habit into the leading meditation platform for busy, stressed out people. In 2017, Kim was honored by Forbes 30 Under 30 and Marie Claire’s New Guard.
