Behind the numbers (medium.com):
These are just a few of the household brands [founded by Asian Americans] that we all know and love or use every day in our homes, at our office or on our phones. These are the companies that entertain us (YouTube, Twitch, Snap), help us work (LinkedIn, Zoom), feed us (DoorDash, Caviar, Panda Express), keep us in shape (Peloton, FitBit, MyFitnessPal) and clothe us (Old Navy, Zappos, GOAT). This list does not even include all of the companies in other industries from finance to healthcare that were started by Asian Americans!
