A White House Champion of Change and a past member of the National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (NACIE) appointed by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, Kathryn is the founder and Managing Director of digitalundivided (DID), a social enterprise that fosters economic growth through the empowerment of Black and Latina women entrepreneurs using innovation as a tool. She is a former General Partner in the Harriet Fund, the first fund focused on Black and Latinx women founders.

Since 2013, DID has impacted over 2,000 people and helped raise $25MM in investments. Her pioneering research, “#ProjectDiane”, drew widespread buzz for disrupting the dialogue around women of color and tech entrepreneurship.

The findings from #ProjectDiane put a unique spotlight on the problem of inclusion in the innovation space, leading digitalundivided to develop a “first of its kind” solution. digitalundivided’s BIG Innovation Center and its resident BIG Accelerator is the only space and program dedicated to the growth of high-growth tech businesses founded by Black and Latina women.
