Candice Delamarre

COO and Co-Founder, Kit Switch
Candice is the COO and Co-Founder at Kit Switch, woman-and-minority-owned small business on a mission to create the homes we need with the buildings we already have. They deliver kits from their library of ready-to-install building interiors for tenant improvements, retrofit, and conversion projects. With their first product line, the Kit-Kitchen, their vision is to more seamlessly install flexible infill housing inside underutilized spaces. She was always passionate about circular and sustainable practices, and equitable access to housing. Throughout her studies and early career, she built expertise in building design and systems engineering. After serving as a strategy and sustainability consultant to various real estate and corporate stakeholders, she decided to offer a solution for housing providers to better leverage existing buildings and preserve their portfolio.
She holds a Master of Engineering from Ecole Centrale Paris and a Master of Science in Sustainable Design & Construction from Stanford University.
