Listed as one of Thrive Global’s “Limit Breaking” Female Founders, Kate Bagoy is an award-winning designer, strategist and business coach.
After quitting a corporate dream job in 2008, Kate moved to Silicon Valley to manage design and marketing for a mobile startup – the valley wasn’t a fit, but she caught the startup bug & has been working with entrepreneurs ever since!
Kate has worked with more than 50 startups as a designer, marketer, product manager, strategist, analyst and advisor. She is a graduate of the Portland Seed Fund, served as a mentor at multiple accelerators and educational programs including Washington State University’s MAP program and Georgia Tech’s ATDC Bootcamp, and has led projects for several Fortune 500 companies, including Nike, Ricoh, HP, Apple, BP and Microsoft. Kate holds a BFA in Graphic Design and an MBA in Marketing and International Business.
Obsessed with travel since a flight to Oregon at six, Kate left the US in January 2017 to travel full-time and runs her business entirely online – and helps other creatives do the same at sixfigurefreelancers.com, the go to online coaching program for freelancers.
Kate’s personal mission is to inspire and empower people to lead lives by design, not default.
