Speaker Bio
As Co-Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of HigherDose, Katie Kaps is the imaginative leader of a one-of-a-kind spa experience at the intersection of wellness, recovery, and beauty.

When Ms. Kaps started HigherDose, she was no stranger to business. She holds a degree in international economics from Georgetown University, studied at the London School of Economics, and comes from a successful career in investment banking, venture capital, and as a Chief Executive Officer for startups. As Director of International Expansion for Tough Mudder, she took the company from $10 million to $150 million in sales, which earned her the title of International Employee of the Year in 2013. Prior to that role, she was a top-rated investment banking analyst for Merrill Lynch.

With years of experience in lean startup methods, bootstrapping, pivoting, scaling, and branding, it’s not surprising that HigherDose is one of the few female-founded companies to secure venture capital funding. Now she’s bringing together her business savvy and creativity to lead what might be one of the most sought-after holistic recovery experiences in the market.
