Detailed Description

Update

Justin Kan is an entrepreneur, Web developer, and the 'Justin' of Justin.tv.

Justin.tv started when Justin Kan and Emmett Shear took on the challenge of broadcasting one person's life 24/7.

Being web developers, they recruited co-founders Michael Seibel and Kyle Vogt to run the business and build a live streaming video camera. For investment, they spoke with Paul Graham of Y Combinator (an investor in their previous start-up) and raised seed capital.

The Justin.tv website launched in March of 2007.

Prior to Justin.tv, Justin Kan and his fellow co-founders created a calendar startup called Kiko, which was also YC-backed and sold to Tucows in 2006.

Justin has also worked on projects including Socialcam, Twitch, and Exec and is currently a Partner at Y Combinator.
