Karl Sona

Karl Sona has been a rainmaker for small to mid-sized companies for nearly a decade.  As CEO and Founder of The Kas Company, a Business Development Agency, Karl and his team utilize their talents for brokering mutually beneficial deals between large private sector corporations and service based minority owned businesses to help create opportunities that most business leaders are overlooking.  As a first-generation immigrant from Cameroon, Karl quickly learned the values of hard work backed by a determined mindset as he watched his parents navigate a new country in search of better opportunities for the family. However, it was only after seeing a privately held company where he was the top salesperson for years sell for 9 figures that he saw the unmet needs of large companies to diversify their supply chain.  Karl believes that majority ownership is the true path to financial freedom and generational wealth and is committed to helping minority owned firms grow into significant enterprises through partnerships with large companies he has built relationships with around the globe.

Kenton Lee

Kenton Lee is the founder of Because International and the creator of their first project The Shoe That Grows.  After spending time living at a small orphanage in Kenya he had the idea for a shoe that could expand its size.  It took six years to work on the idea.  But he and his friends succeeded in developing a shoe that can grow five sizes and last for years.  The cause accidentally went viral in 2015.  And now there are over 350,000 pairs of The Shoe That Grows on the feet of kids in over 100 countries.  Kenton continues to work full-time with Because International in areas of fundraising, grant-writing, strategic leadership, and new projects.  He and his wife Nikki live in his hometown of Nampa, Idaho with their two kids.
