Steven has broad experience implementing AI technology in financial services. He founded Kinta after a lifelong interest in manufacturing led him to realize that the most difficult production optimization problems were neglected by existing solutions. He holds an MS in Economics from Stanford.
Who are we
We’re a small but fast-growing team of engineers, data scientists, and entrepreneurs with a passion for modern manufacturing challenges. We bring the fast execution and ambitious vision of Silicon Valley to support manufacturers on their journey to Industry 4.0.
We automate complex production planning, helping advanced manufacturers respond flexibly to uncertainty and achieve immediate and recurring savings.
In doing so, we help manufacturers excel in a world of increasing supply chain disruption and economic volatility.
