Silja Kim is an experienced entrepreneur and business developer as well as a beginner investor. She has a history of covering the health and wellness industry as a business analyst in management consulting and in venture capital.
Silja’s story is so fascinating. She started her career in the private equity and venture capital world at various reputable funds. What she didn’t foresee is that she will be sitting on the other end of the table as an Executive in various eyewear brands.
Upon graduating from Columbia Business School, she launched her first business which is an eye care brand, SPINOZA. She partnered with eye doctor tastemakers positioning her from other companies in the space. The brand’s featherlight and flexible eyewear is sold in eyecare clinics. In addition, 20% of their profits go to cataract surgeries in underserved communities. Currently, she’s also involved in two venture-backed startups headquartered in Korea expanding into the US.
