About Kati Schmidt, CEO & Founder of Piña Colada (35, German):
Kati is passionate about immigration, female entrepreneurship, and gluten-free food. As an early former employee of Airbnb, she left the company in November of 2017 after 6.5 years to pursue her own venture, Piña Colada, to create meaningful connections between groups of six like-minded singles over great food.
Over the past year, we have hosted numerous Piña Colada group dinner dates at The Perennial and Commonwealth. More than 800 singles have signed up to our service and we are steadily growing through word-of-mouth. Learn more about the Piña Colada community in this fact sheet.
