Danny Kim is founder and CEO of Lit Motors, a San Francisco-based start-up vehicle company. A lifelong builder and DIYer, Kim has made everything from musical instruments to eyeglasses to outerwear to bicycles. After a near-death experience while hand building two Land Rovers, Kim was inspired to invent a new vehicle platform aimed at urban drivers. He and his team are designing and developing a self-balancing two-wheeled electric vehicle that combines the effciency of a motorcycle with the safety and convenience of a car.
