Meet Alessandra Knight who is the co-founder and head of operations for the Katch app. The inspiration for katch came from a concept the team started at Dots, a mobile game studio, when searching for a way to give the team more time to do work and less time in meetings.
Like many startups, Dots instituted “no meetings Friday” where team members could have ad hoc meetings, but nothing was allowed to be scheduled. Katch is the productization of this concept.
Katch helps you find time to connect with the right people, at the right time, for you and for them. This company wants to help people avoid pointless meetings.
It is funny to think back to when I was much younger in my career. I try to imagine where I thought I might be, what my journey was going to look like. I had dreamed of being a doctor – that’s what my aunt did. I would’ve never thought it would’ve landed me here, in tech. I mean, after all, who would I have looked to and said, “That’s her – that’s the woman I want to become”?
I’d never seen anyone like me before.
says Alessandra Knight.
