Arben Kane

An entrepreneur,
a tech visionary
& a startup shrink

An arbiter in the world of technology and a relentless challenger against the limitations of the human condition. A serial founder and experienced entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in technology

I’m currently the Chief Executive Officer at Kontur Inc., a geospatial analytics platform that uses a combination of AI and innovative mapping technologies to provide visual, location-aware intelligence across business verticals.

A full stack background in vision, build, fail, success & repeat – with a core emotional atonement to timing, markets, team, clients and social impact. Some call it “magic” – I come to know it more as embracing the wall of the impossible with the right ladder.

I have been fortunate that I got a chance to help him with patent protecting some of these innovations. One such experience was a patent for Flikmedia. He is a pleasure to work with. I look forward to working with him soon again.

Arben is a unique example of the right balance between superb technical knowledge with business acumen, which makes him an extremely successful entrepreneur. He is capable of seeing problems in the simplest technical terms, find solutions, build them, raise money to implement these solutions, find clients, and (eventually) grow successful companies

Arben is the rarest type of mentor and a master entrepreneur. Sitting with him while he talks (and diagrams) about product and market is a revelation. He made your mind work, got you thinking creatively and rigorously, and you left with a deeper understanding of your profession. It is a pleasure to work with him.

Daniel Gelernter

Arben is an inspiration and a role model to me and many other tech entrepreneurs. He demonstrates impressive willpower, passion and expertise for technology and startups. I am confident in Arben’s abilities as a leader and innovator in the world of technology. He is a true tech genius. I am honored to be part of his professional network.
