Justin Kan (born July 16, 1983) is an American internet entrepreneur and investor who co-founded the law-tech company Atrium where he served as CEO.[2][3] He is the co-founder of live video platforms Justin.tv and Twitch, as well as the mobile social video application Socialcam.[4]

He was formerly a partner at Silicon Valley incubator Y Combinator.[5] His attempt to broadcast his entire life at Justin.tv, which he named after himself, popularized the term "lifecasting". Kan also started a Reddit-style electronic music discovery platform, The Drop.[citation needed]

In March 2019, along with Steve Chen he became advisor to Theta, a peer-to-peer video streaming platform that uses blockchain technology.[6]
