My name is Sean and I immigrated to the US at the age of 14. At the beginning, it was very hard to learn English and fit into high school. But being far away from my family in Beijing was much harder.
I have always been close to my grandparents. Watching them age gracefully over the years is a true blessing. However, I feel helpless at times that I can't always be there with them. The long distance makes it difficult to check in. COVID intensified my worry and I felt a strong calling to provide peace of mind for people like me who are far apart from our elderly loved ones.
My background is in Engineering. I knew that technology could be a wonderful tool if it can be well utilized by its intended audience. During grad school at the University of Chicago, I met many like-minded classmates. It became our mission to build a technology company that improves the safety, wellness, and connection for our elders.
Ping is named after my grandma, which means peace and safety in Chinese. We are fortunate to have a team of passionate young professionals who respect and honor our elders and a wise panel of advisors and investors who believe in our cause. We invite you to join us on this journey.
