Meet the Instructorss

Kate Mitchell

Kate Mitchell

Co-Founder + Head Of Content at Pitch Marketing and Communications

Born and raised surrounded by the entertainment industry, Kate’s passion sits at the intersection of old school media and new school technology. Out of morbid curiosity, Kate fell headlong into the startup trenches after graduating from UC Berkeley in 2011. What began as an entry-level product management job turned into a full-blown obsession with human-computer interaction paradigms and the body of language we use to talk about emerging technology. Kate channeled this fascination into her work at Leap Motion, where she drove VR/AR developer community growth through content, partner, and event marketing. In addition to grassroots social and content marketing, Kate has extensive experience in strategic advertising, brand narrative, email campaigns, market research, video, and SEO. When she’s not thinking about startups, she can be found listening to podcasts in LA traffic, or engaging in spirited discussions with strangers about the future.
