Meet Kate McAleer, winner of our 2016 Fellows Program Pitch Competition and founder of Bixby & Co.
BIXBY & CO. IS…

I STARTED MY BUSINESS BECAUSE…
As a member of NYU’s inaugural women’s varsity golf team, I often combed snack aisles in search of a healthy candy bar made with clean ingredients. It was a futile quest until the idea of reinventing the candy bar came to mind. Eventually, Bixby & Co. was born.

MANTRA I LIVE BY…
Embrace your full potential and make a difference.
WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS ARE…
