Co-Founder at Brevitē

Brandon Kim is the founder of Brevitē and RISD alumni. Brandon started a direct-to-consumer backpack company Brevitē as a side hustle in college with his brothers. At first, they catered to photographers, creating a stylish bag that could easily fit a professional camera and its accessories. They have since begun catering to a wider audience and now sell five styles of backpacks, ranging in price from $95 to $219. The bootstrapped company expects revenue to surpass $3 million in 2020.
