Hap is a world-renowned businessman who transformed @TheNorthFace into a worldwide beloved brand by focusing on value and community rather than price. In 1968, Kenneth “Hap” Klopp acquired The North Face – then two small stores, one in San Francisco and one in the Old Barn at Stanford – and turned it into a global apparel business that he ran for 20 years.
                            He also became the executive chairman of Cocona, a nanoparticle company that makes fibers, fabrics, and laminates for active apparel companies, and Obscura Digital, a digital communications business. Today, the MBA ’66 graduate of Stanford Graduate School of Business continues his board roles while also mentoring aspiring entrepreneurs.
                            “It’s very inspiring to be around young people,” he says. “Older people don’t have the optimistic curiosity of younger people. I get enthused by the can-do attitude.” Hap always emphasizes the importance of infusing your values into your brand, the virtues of influencer marketing, and the benefits of interdisciplinary design teams.
                            Hap believes iHug is a true health care disruptor and has a very promising future with the hopes of helping people globally who currently struggle with the monolithic precedence of having limited to no access to healthcare.
