In New Hires, Kipsuvians, Life at Kipsu

 

Join us in welcoming Bridget Fortin to Kipsu as our first office manager. Prior to Kipsu, Bridget was at a Minneapolis-based venture capital firm that focused on technology companies. Outside of work, you'll find Bridget traveling and experiencing new places with her husband and three children as they play hockey, football, soccer, baseball, lacrosse, or any other youth sport of the season. 


  

What drew you to Kipsu

in contrast to other companies? 

Kipsu's commitment to the recruitment process really piqued my interest in the company, because it's clear the team is very considerate in hiring the right person. The energy and culture here excited me, too! 

 

 What were some things you noticed about

the Kipsu team during your first week? 

I noticed that everyone works together as a team—that no task is above or below any person. Additionally, the constant recognition of team members by their peers and managers has been reassuring. 

 

What challenges are you looking

forward to tackling in your work at Kipsu? 

The challenge of finding 10 spare minutes on Chris Smith's calendar each month! 

 

What is your favorite Kipsu core value?

My favorite core value is "Never be Satisfied." There is always room for improvement and more that can be accomplished. 

 

 

 If you could meet any person for a chat over a shared dinner,

who would you pick and why?

I'd like to chat with my paternal grandfather. I never had the chance to meet him, and I'd love to give my father one more chance to have another conversation with his father.
