Kate Labeille

Director of Innovation

At Root Capital, I’m responsible for designing new advisory services, adapting our current suite of services to new value chains or geographies, contributing to the ongoing strategy of our advisory program, and supporting high-quality service delivery by systematizing best practices. Based out of Root Capital’s Nairobi office, I work with colleagues in five time zones around the world who are delivering essential advisory services to businesses that create opportunities in the places that need opportunity the most. Through our field-facing team, I can see directly the impact that this organization creates in farming communities around the world. I love my job. When I’m not in the office, I can most often be found outside rock climbing, hiking, or biking… or cooking or eating something delicious!
