Growing the Vision of Our Founders

When strong, committed people have a compelling vision for product innovation, it’s contagious.
Sonia Sousa held the vision of KENZEN far before the technology was conceived. With PhDs in neural networks and spectroscopy, and an MBA thrown in for good measure, Sonia became interested in the role of key physiological indicators when her brother was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer – after exhibiting no symptoms of the disease. When Sonia herself became ill in early 2018, her vision had largely become real, with all of the levers in place to bring KENZEN solution to market. Named after the Japanese word for “of sound health,” KENZEN captures Sonia’s passion for monitoring physiological markers and preventing injury and illness, on a massive scale.

The magic of KENZEN – a biometric solution that predicts injury and illness before they happen – was Sonia’s dream, and her co-founder Steve Pecko was influential in bringing that dream to the present stage. With a highly-tuned passion for industrial product development and a rare skill for elegant product design, Steve’s eye for beauty brought KENZEN into being.

The current management team at KENZEN is committed to bringing the magic and sophistication of KENZEN  to life.
