Description

Ms. Katherine Barr served as Co-Founding Partner at Wildcat Venture Partners. She also served as General Partner at Mohr Davidow Ventures. She focuses on investments in workforce automation, consumer platforms, digital marketplaces, and retail and e-commerce innovation that leverage predictive analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and/or robotics to disrupt large markets.

Whether it was starting a residential painting company in college or working on a ranch with 80 cowboys, she followed her own path to pursue her dreams. Early in her career, she worked on the Nagano Winter Olympics Committee where she immersed herself in Japanese business culture.
