Sunny is the Founder and CEO of Fulcrum, a cloud-based software system that supports the business of manufacturing for a new generation of production that includes everything from planning to quality control of inventory. Sunny has guided Fulcrum from self-funding to Series A, collecting accolades along the way including being named one of the Minneapolis - St. Paul Business Journal's “40 under 40.” Sunny is passionate about shaping the future of manufacturing and believes it is a critically important pillar of our economy and world. He started his career in consulting, working with hundreds of manufacturers, seeing first-hand the challenges they faced on a daily basis. With no solutions to the issues with which he watched manufacturers struggle, Sunny decided to start a company and convince his coastal friends to work on a foundational problem. Born in China, Sunny emigrated to Minnesota at an early age with his parents, largely due to the University of Minnesota's reputation in Computer Science. He believes his formative experiences in the computer labs of Sheperd Hall, UMTYMP, MITY, Capitol Hill, and all the other Twin Cities programs, helped to form the special set of experiences he was fortunate to have throughout his life, leading to who he is today.
