Did you know that 55 percent of America’s billion dollar startups were founded by immigrants? The United States remains the land of opportunity and many of the world’s best and brightest entrepreneurs continue to flock to America to create cutting edge companies. That’s certainly true for Kaan Gunay, who was born in Germany, raised in Turkey, and now living the dream in America.
Kaan Gunay is well on his way to building his own unicorn startup, having already raised over $21.5 million in capital. Firefly’s primary product right now is on-car mobile smart screens that are helping rideshare drivers earn extra income. The early results have been tremendous, but Gunay has set his sights higher, aiming to use his mobile smart screens to gather data that could soon be used to empower smart cities.
