“I’m a startup founder, deep thinker, fitness enthusiast, amateur bio-hacker and I’m eternally obsessed with learning.” ~Kim Parnell, co-founder of Blank

Kim is a prolific event speaker, social media influencer, fitness enthusiast, startup mentor and has shared the stage with superstars across industries including Gary Vee.

Kim Parnell, the co-founder of Blank, is a seasoned startup veteran originally from Toronto, Canada. Blank aims to be a platform that builds apps automatically without code, thus making app development available to everyone.
