Katharina Mayer is the Founder and CEO of the social start-up Kuchentratsch. Her mission is to prevent the feeling of social isolation and poverty of the elderly by providing grandmas and grandpas with a place in Munich to get together, pursue their passion for baking, and top up their pension. In 2018 Katharina made a successful deal in the German version of shark tank called “Die Höhle der Löwen” where she convinced two lions aka investors of her social startup. In this episode, Katharina talks about how she initially came up with the idea for Kuchentratsch, why she discontinued her career in developmental work, her efficient leadership style managing three generations of employees under one roof, how she dealt with the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic and how she went from product idea to ready-to-buy baking mixes within only a few months!
