I first met Kate at the screening of the documentary Generation Startup, at the University of Denver.  My understanding is that this film is now available on Netflix by the way.

But at the time I wasn’t thinking about any of that. I was watching this movie for the first time on the big screen I was intrigued at all the storylines that were playing out on screen. See the entire premise of the documentary is that filmmakers follow around a few different young entrepreneurs, hungry to make a name for themselves and create amazing companies in the great American city of…Detroit, MI

Needless to say, I recommend you check out the documentary it’s interesting to see how these group of young business men and women move to this city and are really a part of the reconstruction and revitalization of the economy of Detroit. The grittiness, the cold weather, and the scrappy attitude the city carries is definitely absorbed by all the entrepreneurs in how they run their businesses. And if you know me, you know I LOVE scrappy, gritty, roll-up your sleeves, blue collar attitude when it comes to business.

So I loved it and was impressed by Kate and her aspirations. She was at the screening and did Q&A at the end which I greatly appreciated. So after connecting with her, I knew she would be perfect for the show! Hope you enjoy.
