#7 (UT) | Startups, Funding, & Mental Health | Katherine Allen & Atreya Misra
Today’s guests are Katherine Allen and Atreya Misra, founders of Flo Recruit – a personalized recruitment software. In the past year, they’ve raised over $240,000 and been accepted into prestigious programs such as SEAL powered by the Austin Technology Incubator.
Outside of Flo Recruit, Katherine co-founded Genesis, UT's first startup fund for students, and last year helped shatter the horn raiser record by raising over $1,200,000 to continue to fund student entrepreneurs. Katherine came to UT Austin after receiving the Forty Acres Scholarship, UT’s premiere full-ride merit-based scholarship and worked at high growth startups like TrendKite in Austin and Handshake in San Francisco.
Her co-founder Atreya is pursuing a Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering with a focus in Machine Learning here at UT, claiming the highest graduate fellowship available. As an undergraduate at UT Austin, Atreya actively researched different ways to apply machine learning to healthcare and security data and continues this research in his Ph.D. Please join me in welcoming Katherine Allen and Atreya Misra.
