Stanley Kim

CEO, NGoggle

NGoggle is developing a portable, non-invasive neurodiagnostic headset that integrates a wearable, wireless, dry electroencephalogram (EEG) system and a head-mounted display that objectively monitors the electrical brain activity associated with visual field stimulations. 

Stanley Kim is a seasoned entrepreneur who has founded and launched several companies in diverse industries, including pharmaceutical/biotechnology, medical device and software. His first startup, SoftMax, whose signal processing technology now resides on a standard on many of the current smartphones, was acquired by Qualcomm in 2007. His second startup, Emotient, developing an adaptive (e.g., machine learning) system to recognize facial expression and emotion, was one of only eight startups acquired by Apple Inc. in the year 2016.
