About Katherine

I am an experienced company building and sales/partnerships leader. I co-founded an energy storage / data science startup 3 years ago, we raised $18MM Series A and currently employ over 50 people. I left this year to start another company in the energy space.

I have very limited time at the moment but love meeting and discussing new value-generating, commercially-viable business ideas with other entrepreneurs. You never know when there's a match and a new opportunity might emerge.

My role is that of a strategy setter, business development leader (originator), sales engine and marketer.
