Kim Dawson

2016 Speaker

KIM DAWSON began her entrepreneurial life early, selling arts and crafts door-to-door in her neighborhood at the age of seven. This mindset continued through college, where she ran several small businesses to pay her way through school, and since then, has owned a fitness center, a health and wellness business, and co-owned a software company. With a life-long passion for entrepreneurship, firsthand experience with the process of starting and growing businesses, and a desire to help women gain economic power, Dawson founded the K.Dawson Company, which helps women start and grow scalable companies. In her spare time, she enjoys running, yoga, hiking, photography and spending time with her two children. She splits her time between Boston and Northampton, Massachusetts. Her guilty pleasures include salt bagels, 80’s movies, Gordon Gecko quotes, and the music played in grocery stores. Dawson is the host of “The Sassy Strategist” podcast where she interviews female CEOs, startup founders and entrepreneurs who are building growth-based companies. @sassystrategist
