Maren Kate

Managing Partner
AVRA Talent
New York

Maren Kate is an entrepreneur, writer, and pigeon fancier. Her first venture-backed startup grew to over 400 people before she turned 30, but then, due to the perfect storm of missteps, was forced to shut down overnight. This very public and painful failure taught Maren a variety of lessons, most notably the importance of bringing the right people on board. She now uses her unique experiences as Managing Partner at AVRA, a firm dedicated to creating a world where good help isn’t hard to find.
