Maren Kate Donovan
Maren Kate Donovan is an entrepreneur, writer and pigeon fancier. Her first venture-backed startup grew to over 400 people before she turned 30, but then, due to perfect storm of missteps, was forced to shut down overnight. This very public and painful failure taught Maren a variety of lessons, most notably the importance of bringing the right people onboard. She now uses her unique experiences as managing partner at Recruit, a firm dedicated to creating a world where good help isn’t hard to find.
