“I love Marissa’s PR for Startups Guide. It literally sits on my desk every day, and I refer back to it continuously to guide my outreach. It is integral to my strategic marketing and publicity action plan.” Allison Oberland, Space Kit
“The thing I like best about Green Spaces is the fact that its cofounder Marissa is always looking for innovative ways to promote and develop the initiatives and businesses of the community members. She connects us with thought leaders and key media who want to know us. In addition, as my company was looking for Series B funding, we had to show investors that carpooling.com was a tech company with tremendous potential. Marissa was instrumental in helping me reach out to top tier media with the right tone and story angles. We got coverage in The New York Times, FastCompany, and Forbes within just a couple of months. And we got funded!”
- Odile Beniflah, Head of International PR, Carpooling.com
“Marissa Feinberg is an innovator and spirited entrepreneur. Marissa was instrumental in the planning days before Plant A Fish (Fabien Cousteau’s nonprofit dedicated to restoring our oceans and other bodies of water) launched, helping to create vital messaging and marketing materials that have now been deployed and used for various campaigns. Her can-do attitude is contagious and her enthusiasm is unstoppable.”
- Susan McPherson, Senior Vice President at Fenton Communications
”Marissa has a fantastic ability to connect the right kind of people. Most recently she put me in touch with my current partner and we are a perfect match merging our efforts, abilities and goals. In a busy world like mine, it’s important to be connected with people that are a good fit on a personal, professional and cultural level. This is why I trust Marissa’s judgement, she recognizes synergies and partnerships like no other.”
- Silvia Christmann, Founder of Wandering Planet
“The Sustainable Transit Salon at Green Spaces was a wonderful opportunity to test our preliminary ideas about implementing a traffic pricing system in the New York metro area. The space provided a terrific forum for engaging people in a dialogue and Marissa and friends did a great job turning out a crowd. The folks who attended were knowledgeable and passionate about traffic pricing and gave us invaluable feedback on how to put forward a plan that meets the twin goals of raising money for public transportation and reducing traffic congestion while minimizing any adverse effects on working New Yorkers. Many thanks for a great night!”
- Alex Matthiessen, former Executive Director of Riverkeeper and currently leading his own environmental consulting practice with clients Nurture Nature Foundation, Anbaric Transmission, and Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies Inc.
“I was thinking this morning about the very first meeting I had last year with (the fabulous) Marissa Feinberg, owner of Greenspaces NYC and Loosecubes Host numero uno. I presented her with this crazy idea about getting a bunch of people together to share workspace with each other. People who had space and people who needed it. People whose backs were hurting from working at Starbucks. People who were sick of commuting. People who were seeking moments of connection and friendship to brighten the work day. People who said, “I want more out of my life and my work.”
And she was up for it.
I figured we could make a site and people could get to work. I started out trying to get more productive, and what’s happened is my life has been transformed not by all the work I’ve banged out but by the relationships I’ve made with all of you. You are open. You are passionate. You are making your own rules…and in so doing, you are making our world so so beautiful.
Yes, the search needs work. Yes, the pages could load faster. But we couldn’t ask for a better group of people to be on this adventure with.
You’ve made my life more full. My days more productive. My evenings more fun. Thank you for your generosity of spirit, your willingness to share, and your willingness to believe that it is possible to change the way the world works.
You guys are making it happen, one day and one conversation, one shared experience at a time. We may be a small movement now, but we’re growing stronger every day. I can feel it.”
- Campbell McKellar, Founder, Loosecubes
