A note from Tim Hasse, Principal at Trim Agency: Kim Kadiyala has led strategy for some of the brightest startups at Techstars Boston, wrote her master’s thesis on co-working at one of the world’s most innovative universities (Hyper Island in the UK), and has given a TEDx talk in the Cayman Islands. She brings world-class startup experience and a love of building collaborative communities to our startup studio…A serendipitous skill set for leading product research and strategy at the Director level.
I’m Kim Kadiyala and I’m so excited to be working at Trim on product strategy. I’m a very new South Florida transplant, by way of Wisconsin, Chicago, Boston, the Caribbean and the UK (whew!). My background is in digital media strategy, working for giants like SC Johnson and Disney, and the badass agile startups of Techstars.
Over the past two years, I got really interested in how startup founders can benefit from creative workspaces and how those spaces can be designed to accelerate productivity. That curiosity led me from research, to an ebook, a TEDx talk and to starting the Cayman Island’s first coworking collective, Cowork Cayman.
When I decided to move to Fort Lauderdale, I figured I’d join a coworking space and keep on with my consulting business. But when I found General Provision and realized that the space is powered by an agile app and development shop, I emailed Tim and pretty much begged him to meet with me.
So here I am 🙂
When I’m not uncovering new content, platform and audience opportunities for our clients, you can find me fitnessing, eating pizza with my husband, or talking about my nephews.
Join Kim and build apps with us at Trim – we’re hiring! (Don’t worry, we don’t only hire people with names that rhyme with Trim.)
