Kate Elfatah: From Corporate Worker to Entrepreneur

Kate Elfatah is the designer and entrepreneur behind House of Minerva, a design house specializing in children’s apparel, women’s bags, and accessories. Elfatah began making cosmetic bags for friends a few years ago. As demand for her products grew, she started creating totes and handbags as well. Elfatah, who has worked in the corporate world for several years, juggled her budding design career with a full-time job and home life. She later decided to quit her corporate job and follow her dream of becoming a designer and local business owner.

Within two years, Elfatah grew House of Minerva into a profitable business. What was once a weekend hobby is now a family endeavor – Elfatah’s daughters and niece have joined her in crafting House of Minerva products.

In addition to running House of Minerva, Elfatah offers coaching and consulting services to her fellow small business owners. She believes in helping other entrepreneurs in her community.
