Executive Team

Olin Lagon, CTO

Olin Lagon incubated and then spun out Shifted Energy while he was Executive Director of Kanu Hawaii, one of Hawaii’s largest grassroots organizations with nearly 20,000 members statewide. Olin is a technology innovator and social entrepreneur with a long time passion for sustainability. He co-founded several companies and helped invent pioneering technologies in diverse fields including content localization and crowdfunding. He co-authored multiple technology patents and his inventions have been adopted by many Fortune 500 companies as well as organizations like MIT and the Olympics. His startup ChipIn created the first commercial crowdfunding system and directed nearly $100 million to causes worldwide. Half of Olin’s life has been spent in service including the U.S. Navy, the Peace Corps, and several nonprofits. Born and raised in Hawaii, Olin got first-hand experience of low opportunity communities through his years living in public housing projects. He spends all of his free time with his family and volunteering at a Foundation he co-founded, Purple Mai’a, which teaches coding and computer science through after-school or elective classes to Native Hawaiian students, low-income youth, and others who are underrepresented in tech.
