After a brilliant career as a writer in Hollywood, Kate took her love of story-telling, letter-writing, and globe-trotting in a totally new direction with the founding of Banjo Robinson. Leveraging her instincts and personal contacts, Kate shares how she slowly turned her passions into a fast-growth company that simply and beautifully combines ed-tech, personalization, and children's literature.
Her business excited so many so early on that 14 out of the first 17 investors she approached invested in her! Kate's humble honesty about not knowing the rules, her bravery in front of crowds as big as 15,000 (her "worst nightmare"), and her bold vision for Banjo's future (merchandise and a TV show are already in the works!), are as stand-out as her quiet brilliance. It's hard to keep from cheering when speaking with Kate, and she will leave you with fresh ah-ha's and rules to live by that make being a founder and being alive feel as magical as Banjo Robinson itself.
