Keek Founder Isaac Raichyk Proves That Age Is Just a Number

Most people would assume that Keek, the video-focused social network, was founded by a millennial. After all, it’s targeted at younger people and it’s a “new” form of staying in touch. Users post 36-second video updates from their smartphone, tablet, or laptop and share them with their friends. Founded in 2011, Keek currently has about 50 million users in over 200 countries, with 200,000 more joining every day. But the Toronto-based company was actually started by 64-year-old Isaac Raichyk, who had previously launched three tech businesses.

Raichyk believes that being an older and more experienced entrepreneur has its advantages. “Having done this a couple of times, you know what’s ahead. It means you are less likely to repeat the same mistakes.” He adds that, because he’s an empty nester, he can work all day without having to deal with any distractions. And that’s just what he plans to do – work on turning Keek into a household name just like Twitter and Facebook.
