The story of how Clascity came to be
Today, we’re doing something a little different from our regular content. We’ll be introducing the CEO of Clascity, Caleb Lai. We’ll be sharing everything, okay not everything, about him. So let’s get started.

Caleb grew up in Hong Kong and immigrated to Canada in 2012. Aside from being the CEO of Clascity, he’s also a product designer for other small to medium businesses.

Clascity isn’t the only business he founded. He’s also the co-owner of Alphaio, a start-up created to help other start-ups create better customer experiences through web and interface design. On top of that, he’s a YouTuber, sharing his tips and tricks about freelancing and product design. He’s definitely a busy guy.
Why did he start Clascity
As a previous swimming instructor, he understands the struggles of teaching and the skills gaps across industries. Many people have tremendous talents in one area but lack talents in another. He sees the value of skill sharing and how it can improve society. So Clascity was born, to build a space for people to share their talents and skills, regardless of the industry you’re in.
