Kata leads Impact.tech operations at Fifty Years.

Before joining Fifty Years, Kata led the programming for Slush, a 20,000 people tech conference in Europe, focusing on helping founders build world-class companies. After leaving her Chief Curator position, she wrote a best-selling book on the Finnish startup culture that was distributed to Finnish high school students nationwide. She believes that to be able to solve the world's biggest problems, technology companies should be built by people with diverse backgrounds.

Kata oversees the day-to-day of Impact.tech, an event series that brings together scientists, entrepreneurs, and investors who want to learn about new, impactful technologies coming from academia. Kata loves good conversations, road trips, vinyasas and sunrises at Burning Man.
