After living in Japan for several years, Danny Taing moved back to the United States, and to his dismay, found that he couldn’t find the snacks he had loved so dearly in the United States. As an Asian-American with deep western and eastern cultural roots, he saw an opportunity to bridge the two cultures and share Japanese culture with the rest of the world. Partnering with 100+ year old local snackmakers across Japan, Danny worked to curate Bokksu--a Japanese snack subscription service.
Equally notable, Bokksu is bucking many business trends. Unlike many of the e-commerce and subscription boxes that have raised significant venture funding, Bokksu has been focused on profitability and product fit. With less than $2M in funding, Bokksu has achieved 7-figure revenues and profitability. Danny is a BIPOC and LGQBT single founder, and leads a team across New York and Japan, in which >30% of the company is BIPOC, female, LGBQT, and bilingual.
