About the Author

Kathryn Finney, named by Inc Magazine as one of the 'Most Influential Women in Tech', is a Yale-trained Epidemiologist, visionary entrepreneur, startup champion and author. Currently CEO of Genius Child and General Partner of the Greenhouse Venture Fund, Kathryn has paved the way for Black women in business. After founding and selling The Budget Fashionista, she became one of the first Black women to have a successful seven-figure startup exit. Prior to this, Kathryn held the role of CEO of the revolutionary social enterprise digitalundivided, focued on empowering Black women to own their work.


Having been an entrepreneur and founder for over 20 years, I have read my fair share of business books but Build The Damn Thing is like nothing else I've read! Kathryn's honest insights and 'tell it like it is' approach to building is not only's necessary; especially in a time when so much is at stake. I greatly appreciate the attention to principles typically glossed over-or completely ignored-in most books about entrepreneurship, like the importance of core values. That, for me, makes Build The Damn Thing a must-read for any aspiring startup founder grounded in commitment and responsibility.
