Maren Gaarder: Program Coordinator

Maren Gaarder goes from Intern to Program Coordinator at Katapult

From star intern to Program Coordinator, please officially welcome Maren Gaarder to the Katapult team! Maren will be supporting startups in Accelerator Programs across the Katapult Group, including: food-tech entrepreneurs in Africa and tech founders working on Ocean and Climate solutions globally.

Maren studied Marketing Management, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, researching startup-corporate collaboration for her Master’s Thesis. After gaining experience in market research at a sustainable food brand, she found her way to Katapult in August 2020!

Why did Maren stick with Katapult?

“Once I was introduced to the world of startup ecosystems I was convinced it was something I wanted to pursue. Combined with my passion for sustainability, Katapult stood out as a guiding star in the field of impact investing. After working with the Katapult family for almost a year, these impressions have been confirmed, and I am beyond excited to continue accelerating passionate entrepreneurs in our programs! It is amazing to see how many unique and meaningful solutions are already out there, and incredible to see how technology can scale this impact.”

We are also beyond happy to have you onboard, Maren!
