In July, Katch, a scheduling app, raised a $4 million seed round led by the venture-capital firm LocalGlobe and the fund Speedinvest. Other angel investors included the Giphy founder Alex Chung and Classpass CEO Fritz Lanman.
Knight said the fundraising journey was "an incredible opportunity."
"As a Black woman, I felt empowered to be there having a seat at the table for our voices to be heard," Knight said, adding that she'd met other founders of color who wanted the same opportunity to sit with venture capitalists.
"I hope we see more of that in the future, VCs who see the value in minorities like me," she said.
