Our Ceo

KC Chhipwadia CEO & Founder

KC is convinced deep to his core that the creation of Athlete Foundry was 20 years in the making, forged through his NASA and U.S. Navy life-changing events, challenges, and experiences, each uniquely preparing him to discover his life's true purpose ― to improve the odds and inspire others to seek and achieve their dreams by crushing inequities ― starting with student athletes.

Before starting Athlete Foundry, KC has been privileged to serve our great Nation in two capacities, 20 years as a senior human space flight engineer at NASA Johnson Space Center, supporting over 50 Space Shuttle missions, including the Space Shuttle Columbia accident investigation, with his last post serving as the manager of the Space Shuttle astronaut launch & entry suit and crew escape system; and 20+ years, active & reserve combined, in our United States Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer, including deployments to Iraq looking for our missing-in-action, and Afghanistan with Naval Special Warfare.

After life changing deployments, KC discovered his much bigger purpose & passion, taking his combined NASA & Navy backgrounds to build a world-class team, products, and company to lift and positively impact pre-college student athletes & families across our great Nation, through a new lens, like never before.
