When Kate's company www.ditto.com got sued by patent trolls and a big company 1-800 Contacts, Kate could have given up - because I would have, I thought. In true Kate fashion, she chose to fight this impossible battle, and fast forward to today, is on her way to win it. This story says everything about Kate, the entrepreneur. It is a story of tenacity, determination and optimism. Kate has inspired me throughout my own Pause & Shine journey to keep going. I have called her when I needed advice; friends call her when they are on the verge of giving up. Kate left her finance job and attended Stanford business school, soon to be reunited with her true passion. Today, she is the CEO and co-founder of www.DITTO.com, an ecommerce site selling designer sunglasses and eyewear, featuring cutting edge new video “try-on” technology.
