In 2012, Alice Kao co-founded Sender One Climbing--the largest indoor rock climbing gym company in the Los Angeles and Orange County metro areas--with her business partners, Wes Chu and Wes Shih (who is also her husband). Sender One has a straightforward mission—to create wondrous spaces where people can discover themselves and connect with others…through climbing.

 

Prior to joining the climbing industry, Alice had a successful career as an international sales and marketing executive for four separate toy companies and, prior to that, as an investment banker.  She discovered climbing in 2008 while living and selling toys in London.  Climbing guided her through tough personal times and sparked her closest friendships.

 

Alice graduated from UCLA in 2001 with a degree in International Economics. 

Alice has been a member of Entrepreneurs' Organization since 2014, serving on its board for three years. She resides in Torrance, CA with Wes and their two daughters, Sydney and Adelaide.

 

Alice Kao

The event will be moderated by Todd Presner. He is Associate Dean of Digital Innovation in the Division of Humanities, Advisor to the Vice Chancellor of Research, Chair of UCLA’s Digital Humanities Program and Professor in the Humanities. He has been an avid rock climber for the past 20 years.
