SVA & Hatch Members Only: A Conversation with Kathleen King, Founder of Tate’s Bake Shop

April 16, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm

Tates Cookies founder

Join us for an exclusive conversation with Kathleen King, the woman behind Tate’s Bake Shop. Founded in 2000 when she was 40 years old, Tate’s was sold last June to the maker of Oreo and Chips Ahoy, for $500 million. But Kathleen’s business journey wasn’t easy, and she credits the brand’s success to losing the first bakeshop she founded. Kathleen will share how early epic failures drove her to epic success — you won’t want to miss it.

NOTE: This event is exclusively for Startup Virginia and Hatch Kitchen RVA members and precedes our SVA Backstage Pass event. We recommend you attend this event instead of the evening one since you will be able to ask more questions!

Thank you to our partner SunTrust for making this event possible!
