Kristian Andersen Designer + Founder + Investor

I work with entrepreneurs and business leaders to design compelling brand experiences, create new business models, and innovate new products and services. In addition to my work at KA+A, I’m an active angel investor and co-founder of Gravity Ventures, a seed-stage venture fund that invests in tech-focused startups. I’ve co-founded a few startups, including; TinderBox, Lessonly, Visible.vc and Pathagility. Along the way, I’ve had the privilege of advising a number of others. I sit on a few start-up and non-profit boards, co-founded The Speak Easy & Indy Made, and serve as a mentor at The Iron Yard, RunUpLabs, and the ARK Challenge accelerators. I split my time between Indianapolis and Arkansas, where I mix it up with my amazing bride and 5 kids.
