About Us

Where community is our calling.

Born in Corning, NY, Kwinshi is the product of our desire to connect with the people and community around us.

Yannick Basabakwinshi

Yannick has been calling New York home for 11 years and has planted deep roots in the community. A Cornell University alum, he forged his career as an IT Engineer at Corning Inc. where he met the love of his life and continued to build a future there. Now an entrepreneur, Yannick is raising his three children with his wife in Corning and is a business owner in the town’s historic Market Street.

Why Corning?

The open beta phase is launching exclusively from Corning, NY and servicing the neighboring town and cities within a 90 minute radius. Corning’s history of innovation, hard work, and community, coupled with its diverse mix of residents, has today cultivated an electric bustle of commerce, culture, and creativity. It was in the buildings, houses, and the cafes of Corning that the concept of Kwinshi took its first breath - so it only made sense that this is where we would take our first steps.
