Perfect Pitch: Nick Chen

Updated: Jul 22, 2021

Founder, CEO, Musician

Current City: Brooklyn, NY

Current Job and Entrepreneurial Focus: Co-founder and CEO of Pico

Notable Prior Jobs: I was a Product Designer at several early-stage software startups before starting Pico.

When I Started Performing: When I was around 5, I started learning piano and competing in poem recitation contests at my Saturday Chinese school.

Performing Arts Background: Growing up, I learned piano and violin, participated in children’s choirs, and competed in Chinese poem recitation contests. In middle school, I developed a passion for musical theater, and I then redirected my performing arts energy in college toward a cappella, singing pop, rock, and R&B. I still perform a cappella today as a member of The Workshop.

How did your performing arts background supercharge your entrepreneurship? It equipped me at an early age with public speaking, storytelling, and improvisation skills that I use every day as an entrepreneur.

Favorite Performer: Freddy Mercury and Beyoncé come to mind first, but it’s hard to pick just one!
