Justin Kan is the CEO and co-founder of Atrium with a simple mission to help founders scale their startups through transparent legal services. As a founder of multiple companies and an investor in hundreds more, he started the company after finding his experiences with traditional law firms frustrating. Today, he’s transforming an entire industry by reimagining the delivery of legal services to be client first and founder-friendly.
Justin is a leading figure in Silicon Valley who’s best known for co-founding Twitch (originally Justin.tv), which was acquired by Amazon for $1 billion in 2014. Soon after, he joined Y Combinator, the preeminent startup accelerator, as a partner and became a prolific angel investor and mentor to startup founders ever since.
In addition to his investor activity, he is a serial entrepreneur who started companies such as Exec, an on-demand errand service (acquired by Handybook in 2014); Socialcam, a mobile app for sharing video (acquired by Autodesk in 2012); and Kiko, the first Ajax web calendar.
Outside of his professional accomplishments and experiences, Justin is a huge advocate for living consciously and being holistically, especially emotionally, healthy. He often leads discussions online and in-person about what it means to be a conscious individual and how to bring your whole self in and out of work.
Justin is a graduate of Yale University.
