About The Show

Serial entrepreneur Jessica Kim spent over a year researching ideas and market opportunities for her next venture when she became the primary caregiver for her ailing mother. As that season drew to a close, she abandoned her other ideas and drew upon her caregiving experience, her business design background, and a period of deep theological and cultural reading and reflection to launch ianacare in late 2018.

Venture is hosted by Philip Lorish, and produced by Praxis and Narrativo.
