Kalika Yap


A native of Quezon City, Philippines, and a kamaaina of Honolulu, Hawaii, she started out working as a journalist for CNBC and Bloomberg after graduating from NYU.

She loved the bustle of New York City but traded it in for the West Coast. The move wasn’t an easy one – finding a journalism job in Los Angeles proved more difficult than in media capital New York.

In love with California, she decided to make lemons out of lemonade. At one point, she was couch-surfing and making $6/hr under the table at the first internet cafe in Southern California. She’s since grown her companies to revenues of $35M+
