Gwang Hyun Kwon

Country: South Korea

Company: BPM

The story of BPM traces back to 2012 when Gwang lost his hearing on his right side after getting into a traffic accident. Feeling unsafe with typical audio technology, he built a team to create a safe audio device. The company’s name “BPM – Beats Per Minute” focuses on the passion around a joyful, sporty lifestyle. Many modern people enjoy sports, running and jogging as a part of their life, but dangerous accidents can occur and BPM’s open-ear audio device aims to help people workout safely. Gwang plans to collaborate with sports brands to promote the device.
