Co-FOunder

Hi, my name is John Kelly and I am an Entrepreneur with a love of technology and chess. I grew up competing in tournaments where I learned many lessons that helped to shape who I am including how to win or lose graciously. Through chess I also met my life-long friend and co-founder Furqan Tanwir. Together we started Chessmates as way to bring the best of the scholastic tournament experience to the next generation of young players.
