Katie Kurfurst joined Ventures in 2016.
Katie works to enhance organizational visibility, sustainability, and client success through marketing and communications as Ventures’ Marketing Specialist. She joined Ventures because she wants to empower low-income communities by providing them with the tools and services necessary to start their own businesses.
Katie graduated from the University of Washington with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Norwegian. Prior to Ventures, she did state capacity building at the League of Conservation Voters, marketing for Decibel Festival, and event management and mar-comm at Whitepages.com. When not at Ventures, Katie spends her time volunteering with the Capitol Hill Community Council, representing her neighborhood in the 2016 HALA Community Focus Group and Capitol Hill Renters Initiative, and gardening.
Katie’s dream business is an interior decorating company that focuses on creating vibrant baroque to modern eclectic rooms and atmospheres.
