As a designer, I loved having Katie on board to vet concepts for actual market opportunity, prove the case for investment with solid business models, and build growth plans to make sure projects succeeded long-term. She was a great thought partner on product strategy and was extremely thorough, conscientious, and reliable in everything she delivered.

Kanvas came in and streamlined our operation, fostering stronger client relationships and smoother, more efficient processes. They also lent a much needed external birds-eye-view to our new business process, from sales materials to analyzing our sales funnel and strategizing our pitch. The result has been not only a truly wonderful partnership amongst our companies, but a doubling in revenue from year 2 to year 3 of our business.

Katie is uniquely able to seamlessly mix analytical and human-centered methods to sort through the noise in moments of abundant ideas. Working with her, I've always come out with clear priorities, rapidly and rigorously de-risked venture concepts, and precise strategies that are readily-communicable for all kinds of investors and stakeholders. Working with her is like adding the perspectives and toolkit of 2-3 different types of experts, all in one, and she is masterful at navigating key moments of the product and venture strategy process to deliver great outcomes.

Katie and her team were consummate professionals and I cannot imagine a world for Apostle, [our emerging men’s makeup brand], without the very detail oriented collaboration with Kanvas.
