061 - Dalia Katan

Welcome to another edition of Workspaces! We bring you inside the workspaces of creative individuals. Workspaces hopes to inspire you by showing you the toolkit that many creatives use to do their daily work. ☕️

If you’re interested in following along in realtime, seeing my inspiration, suggesting new workspaces, getting equipment/software suggestions… join the growing community here! (we will be chatting in the #workspaces channel. Come say hi!) 🎉

Dalia Katan is the founder and CEO of Presently, a group celebration platform that makes it easy for people to collaborate on a group gift, card, or video for that special occasion.

Even though the startup world is quite the rollercoaster, she feels very lucky to have a job that centers around bringing joy to others.
