About Hong Phuc

Hong Phuc is a Vietnamese newcomer of 2 years. Having struggled to work through the labyrinth of barriers to finding work faced by immigrants, she created Kibbi App with the mission to revolutionize the job search experience for immigrants and refugees, enabling them to enter the workforce swiftly and contribute to local businesses and economies. The app helps thousands of newcomers per month ease the process of finding local jobs to settle fast and lowers the common barriers to jobs such as language, local know-how, and resume and cover letter writing. Kibbi is the only job portal that translates jobs into 60+ languages. Within 6 months of launch, Kibbi has secured 895k investment from angels and is currently incubated at the Platform Calgary.

Before moving to Canada, Hong Phuc was an MBA graduate from Hong Kong University, had +12 years in marketing, and worked in 4 different Asian countries including Malaysia, the Philippines, Hong Kong and Vietnam.
