Hello! I’m Catarina Gutierrez. I’m a product manager, marketing director and facilitator with a background in startups and impact business. Welcome to my website!
I’ve had over 10 years of experience working as a product manager, digital marketing manager, and programme director for social enterprises and startups all over New Zealand. Helping business leaders is a passion of mine. I enjoy building confidence in founders and directors by facilitating strategy sessions, connecting them to others, and advocating for their success in Aotearoa New Zealand. I dedicate myself to asking the hard questions, creating meaningful content and lending a critical hand wherever they need it.
I’ve hosted many events including Aotearoa Social Enterprise Unconference and Women Who Get Shit Done. I’ve developed a long-standing Startup Activation Programme in Christchurch to boost economic development and business in partnership with Canterbury Development Corporation (now ChristchurchNZ and Christchurch City Council). I’ve worked with scaling and growing impact businesses to strategise on how best to gain more customers, generate more impact and release software features and product enhancements faster than ever before. I’m a certified facilitator and supervisor who isn’t afraid to ask the tough questions to get at the root of any challenge your business is facing.
