NEXT Studios is excited to formalize our long-time relationship with Kara Kavensky as our Communication and Storytelling Executive to the innovation studio. NEXT Studios has worked with Kara for years and we thought it was time to make it official!
Kara helps our portfolio companies and cohort participants coalesce their stories. She has 25+ years experience as a professional corporate communications expert, public relations strategist, author, and podcaster. Her super power is humanizing businesses and empowering them with authentic messaging.
A born storyteller, Kara loves sharing inspiring stories. She has written thousands of personal interest articles, op-eds, and features on fascinating people to local and national magazines and news outlets. She writes speeches and coaches teams of entrepreneurs on how to craft their pitch — she’s worked with hundreds of startups to help them craft successful presentations for investment.
Kara possesses a strong passion for honest, powerful, effective storytelling catalyzing meaningful, positive change. Her first memoir, Finding Joy, will be released soon. Her podcasts Finding Joy with Kara and Record Scratch with Kara celebrate inspirational humans.
Kara serves on the Board of Directors for The Indianapolis Propylaeum, volunteers with the Caroline Scott Harrison chapter for Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), is a Blue Star mom (her son serves in the USAF), and will be launching Remain Relevant: a Master Class for corporate storytelling in 2024.
