  1. Kevin is characterized by his conviction and willingness to make bold bets, and these characteristics have enabled Kevin to lead Hive into becoming a leading provider of cloud-based AI models and data labeling. Kevin started his entrepreneurial journey as a consumer app developer who became confronted with the challenge of content moderation on a fast-growing platform. This challenge inspired Kevin to solve the problem he faced on a market-wide level, convincing his investors and employees to transition the company into an enterprise AI company developing best-in-class versions of the various types of models he sought as a developer. Over the past 3.5 years, Hive built a distributed workforce of 2.5M+ registered contributors to label training data for AI models and a portfolio of pre-trained models that are now trusted by more than 100 of the world’s largest and most innovative companies to accelerate their AI capabilities. While there remains tremendous growth and opportunity ahead for Hive, the success of Kevin’s leadership to date and the reward for his bold bet was evident when the company announced $85M in new capital and a $2B valuation earlier in 2021.
