Co-Founder, 42 Technologies
Cathy credits The Next 36 for helping her develop an entrepreneurial mindset and drive to build her own company. While she was in university, Cathy served as President of Enterprize Canada, Western Canada’s largest student-organized conference and business plan competition dedicated to helping young entrepreneurs. She held a variety of positions prior to joining The Next 36, including being a member of the Calgary Mayoral Council, and an intern at Procter & Gamble. While she was in the 2011 cohort of The Next 36 Cathy co-founded Playfit, a fitness rewards app.
Cathy has since moved on to build 42 Technologies Inc. - a B2B platform that uses point-of-sale data to provide brands with a better way to connect and personalize their interactions with customers. After launching at New York Fashion Week 2013 and TechCrunch Disrupt NYC, 42 was accepted into Y-Combinator's 2014 cohort and is now headquartered in San Francisco. Cathy has a passion for contributing to growing people and communities, and is a keynote speaker at Montreal’s International Start-up Festival.
