Kate McAleer Named Tory Burch Foundation Fellow

We are incredibly excited and proud to announce that Kate McAleer, co-founder of Bixby & Co. has been selected as a Tory Burch Fellow.  This incredible news follows a nationwide hunt for women entrepreneurs by the Tory Burch Foundation, a nonprofit organization that is focused on supporting the empowerment of women entrepreneurs in the United States.

The competition selected 30 finalists from across the country and only 10 Fellows from this final group were selected – of which Kate is now one.  Kate is the only finalist and now fellow from the State of Maine.

Kate will now take part in a 3 day workshop at Tory Burch head quarters in New York as part of her 1 year fellowship and will also be given an opportunity to pitch for a $100,000 grant investment.

The team at Bixby & Co. are very proud of Kate and her achievements as a young entrepreneur and are excited to see where this wonderful opportunity from the Tory Burch Foundation will take her.  View Kate’s Tory Burch Fellows Competition profile and the 2016 Fellows.

We want to thank you all for showing your ♥ for Bixby & Co. and Kate during the voting & selection process – it means the world to us!
