Digitalising businesses within the 
Beauty, Wellness and Medical industries since 2015

Our Founder

Kevin Nair

Kevin is a believer of making things happen and he continuously emulates this culture with the team in Kumo.

He inspires the team to have confidence and believe in what they do, to always listen to the market's pain points and provide a solution where possible.

"We work with our subscribers as partners with integrity and trust; thus I can confidently say our relationship with our subscribers are tight. We have this culture to continuously address our subscribers' pain points and it has been working for us throughout the years. There is no shortcut to this—it is the main key to a sustainable business."

Background

Kevin started his own IT hardware business at the tender age of 21 to pay his university fees, and graduated with First Class Honours in Computer Science from Coventry University, United Kingdom.

After graduation, he continued to run his business while working with a Japanese telecommunication company. He then pursued his Master of Business Administration (MBA) at HELP University, Kuala Lumpur under a President's List scholarship while working and running his own business. He often says that most of his white hairs started to pop up during his MBA; we can now understand why. After obtaining his MBA, Kevin left his full-time job to continue his IT hardware business, and then started Kumo.

Besides Kumo, Kevin now also runs Servecomp Technologies and Mediconnexions Consulting, which are software development and medical communications businesses respectively, serving the pharmaceutical industry throughout Malaysia, Asia and Oceania.

The SPARK of Kumo

The Beauty and Wellness industries back in 2015 lacked proper software to manage their clients' growing needs.

Kevin decided to change that, and that was when Kumo was born.

At the time, cloud adoption was still relatively new and limited in Malaysia.
Being the only cloud provider from Malaysia for the industry, getting traction wasn't easy as many still preferred the "buy-once-and-use" CAPEX model rather than the "pay-as-you-use" OPEX model.

Kevin knew it would be just a matter of time before it sparked as most other countries were already embracing cloud and the OPEX model then, hence the push for the idea of Kumo.

Where Kumo is today

Kumo's subscription has grown tremendously throughout the years, with a record of 229% growth between 2019 and 2020, during the pandemic where technology adoption was at its highest.

Today, Kumo doesn't only serve the Beauty and Wellness verticals but also the Medical Aesthetics, Dental and Veterinary vertical, with more to come.
