Failure moved the Kinnos team ahead!

Lemelson-MIT Student Prize winners Jason Kang, Katherine Jin, and Kevin Tyan came together as undergraduates in their senior year at Columbia University to form their startup, Kinnos Inc., with the shared desire to work on an invention that makes a significant societal impact.
