Our Team

Chad Kihm

Co-Founder & CEO

Chad holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering from Cal Poly: San Luis Obispo. Freshman year he co-founded a clothing company called Apoc Apparel. He co-founded an entrepreneurial club on campus as a growth hack for low cost marketing events. By Junior year he saw someone every day he didn’t know wearing the clothes.

His Senior year, he studied abroad in Munich, Germany to take masters level business courses without being in a masters program, and to travel to 13 countries across Europe to get familiar with global cultures.

In 2015, six months before graduation, Chad was studying abroad in Germany and knew he needed to decide what career to choose. So he decided to take a five day trip to Dubrovnik, Croatia to meditate and decide which career path to choose. He thought back to what he knew he would enjoy doing every day… and what came to mind was Apoc Apparel and a strategy guide website he had recently started for the most popular mobile game in the world at the time.
