One Concern founder begins regional expansion in Japan with Sompo tie-up

Experiencing devastating flooding in Kashmir in 2014 inspired Ahmad Wani to co-found One Concern.

TOKYO -- Ahmad Wani has been thinking about earthquakes since he was 17. The co-founder and CEO of artificial intelligence startup One Concern was preparing to enter college and living in his native Kashmir when a massive earthquake struck the region, killing more than 70,000 people.

"That was the whole reason I started thinking about earthquakes all the time," Wani said, recalling how the scale of damage prompted him to study structural and earthquake engineering in college.
