Kate Kranenburg

Foundation Inventor

As an intensely curious child, Kate’s passion for understanding the human experience began at an early age. Now as a Foundation Inventor, Kate satisfies her curiosity by examining the interaction between people and systems and using those insights to help build empathy-driven products, services, and experiences for clients.

Prior to joining ?What If!, Kate was a Senior Associate at a boutique consultancy focused on improving the healthcare ecosystem through talent, investment, and de novo business creation. There, she helped to enhance clients’ focus on the patient journey and led executive searches, placing Chief Executives, Marketing, and Product hires that aligned with the companies’ overall vision and strategy.

Having spent her college years in the woods at Dartmouth College, Kate has somehow grown to love big city living but still needs a balance of adventures outside New York City. Her favorite adventure to date was a canoe trip in the Amazon jungle. When she’s not off on exotic adventures, you can find Kate exploring the five boroughs by bike and taking in as much (cheap) live music in Brooklyn as possible.
