Shahin Kohan

President, AIMS360

Shahin Kohan is the President of AIMS 360. His company creates ERP software for the fashion industry, with over 7,000 users worldwide. The company’s state-of-the-art software solutions for apparel manufacturers and wholesalers dramatically improve the way companies in the garment industry manage their businesses. Kohan has spoken out on the need for better intellectual property protections for American businesses in emerging markets; he knows selling his software in emerging markets with weak IP protections would threaten his business. Kohan, among other small business leaders, does not have the resources to defend his company against piracy internationally. He has signed letters and met with members of Congress in an effort to tackle the problem of unfair competition from overseas manufacturers.
