From Arts And Crafts To Tech

Karen HarvestThis is the journey Karen Schoellkopf has taken these last eleven years. Her experience, shared in a recent interview, mirrors the career path of a surprising multitude. Not everyone who’s really active actually come from a technology background.

Karen shares:

“Prior to working at Harvest, I spent 10 years working in the arts, and none of the galleries and artist studios I worked for came anywhere close to the buzz and energy that Harvest HQ has: bubbling with ideas, erupting in debates, and hashing out solutions.”

Oh yes, Harvest. It’s a time tracking app for small businesses whose goal is to “track time and send invoices from one integrated application. Get set up in just a few minutes and instantly start tracking time and invoicing your clients. Contractor and employee timesheet and timesheet approval is included.”

Not only does Karen stay preoccupied with Harvest, but she also does her bit cultivating entrepreneurs through Walkabout NYC, which is a rare annual event where Big Apple tech companies open up their workspaces to visitors. Described as an “open house for startups,” there’s nothing else quite similar to it.

In fact, there’s a Walkabout coming up on June 10—hardly a week away.
