We're gearing up for our first anniversary of Justwomen, a quarterly event we host to celebrate female CEOs, founders, and entrepreneurs.
Our anniversary event on November 16th features Katherine Ryder, founder and CEO of Maven, and Anu Duggal, the founding partner of F Cubed.
At Justwomen, Katherine and Anu will discuss the nature of investments and investing in the startup world.
We also caught up with Katherine beforehand. As the founder and CEO of Maven, Katherine oversees the first digital clinic for women. Maven is a platform that empowers the female healthcare consumer to get access to better health information and services.
Previously, Katherine worked as an early stage investor at Index Ventures, where she focused on consumer technology, and in particular on investments in the health, education, art, and retail sectors.
Prior to joining Index, Katherine worked as a journalist, writing for The Economist from Southeast Asia, New York, and London. In 2009, she worked with former U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, helping him write his memoirs.
Read on to learn more about Maven, about Katherine's career history, and about her favorite business advice.
