Kaz Brecher

Founder & Chief Catalyst, Curious Catalyst, Inc.

A framework generalist and network entrepreneur, Kaz uses pattern recognition and agile prototyping to uncover blind spots and identify opportunities. The founder of Curious Catalyst, and the daughter of two rockets scientists, she excels at turning inquiry into impact and thrives in ambiguous contexts. Kaz designs experiences to build leadership and human-centered design capacity and spark innovation. She is a founding member of the Guild of Future Architects, a natural evolution following her years serving as the Executive Director of Yoxi, an impact investing force, and trailblazing at the intersection of media agencies and disruptive technologies. As a master facilitator, she’s held innovation faculty positions with THNK School of Creative Leadership in Amsterdam and Vancouver. And she’s currently using the science of behavior change as a coach with ThinkHuman. Based in Los Angeles, Kaz is a Stanford graduate and is always in search of good coffee and conversation. See more.
