Founder Profile: Kanin Asva Pursues New Challenges to Overcome

NEW YORK – Founder of ROBUST, Kanin Asvaplungprohm (‘Asva’), has never shied away from a fight. Priding himself on never giving up, the young founder has accomplished much in his short life. A serial entrepreneur, his indomitable will has proven incredibly useful in the venture capital sphere. Since he entered the space as the founder of ROBUST, Kanin has devoted a deep commitment to his firm, utilizing a solid drive with deep cultural ties to conquer industries.

Personal Background

Described in his youth as a bookish and quiet child, Kanin Asva was born into a family of entrepreneurs and was taught the value of determination from a young age. Suffering emotional trauma from almost drowning as a child, the event later taught Kanin valuable lessons in self-determination and emotional resilience. 

Having to undertake three months of rehab following the accident, Kanin refers to this as the genesis of his longstanding personal quality to never give up.

Growing up swimming competitively, Kanin was encouraged by his mother to return to the water and overcome his fear. Leading in the upper echelon of his group, he refused to stop at competitive swimming and trained to scuba dive, going on to earn PADI Certification. Since then, Kanin has shown the resolve to dive head-on into the waters, capable of meeting that depth with the calmness and mental fortitude needed to stay afloat.

After his 18th birthday, Kanin moved to the US to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams. Considering himself to be a global citizen, he made connections in the country relatively easily.

Education and Early Career

Kanin earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Management Science from the University of California, San Diego. Later, he earned his Master’s Degree in Financial Analysis, summa cum laude, from the University of San Francisco. While serving as a Principal at Dynafolio, Kanin gathered all the experience he could at the small-cap private equity firm. Through affording suffering businesses avenues to successful financial recovery, Kanin’s relied on his strong determination never to give up, finding creative solutions to crippling problems.
