Lauren Peate and Alix Klingenberg
Lauren is the co-founder and CEO of Multitudes, a tech product that measures culture from passive data, without surveys. Multitudes was born out of insights that Lauren had from running Ally Skills NZ, a diversity and inclusion consultancy that teaches people how to use their voice and influence to stand with marginalised groups at work. A graduate of Stanford University, Lauren has previously been a management consultant with Bain & Co in San Francisco, interim COO of an eCommerce startup in Jordan, and a Fulbright Scholar in Morocco. In her free time, Lauren enjoys rock climbing, yoga, and long chats with friends.
Alix is the co-founder of Multitudes, and a software developer who has worked across a few of NZ’s fastest growing tech startups. She studied Philosophy then switched to Computer Science and started out as an Android developer before becoming interested in this whole cloud thing and moving to backend and infrastructure. Her day job is with Auror, a super cool startup working to stop crime in NZ, Aus and the US. In her spare time, she helps organise the .NET Auckland Meetup.
