Who: Marissa Sackler, @marissasackler
Where: New York City, NY
By Day: I’m the founder and president of Beespace, a non-profit incubator providing early-stage organizations with office space, operational support and the mentorship needed to go out and profit the world. We’re currently working with five amazing groups that we call Incubees: the Malala Fund, Practice Makes Perfect, the Adventure Project, ORGANIZE and Yoga Foster. My day starts with a cup of tea and an easy stroll to the Beespace office. One of the key features of Beespace—and one of the best parts of my job—is bringing people together to foster interesting conversations and new ideas. I love working with our team to plan new workshops for our Incubees and coordinate Beetalks, our regular speaker series where we bring in leaders with diverse backgrounds to join in conversations with our Incubees and the broader social good community.
By Night: I grew up in the art world and love to take advantage of the incredible cultural scene that thrives in New York. From Shakespeare in the Park to touring artist studios and galleries in Brooklyn—Matthew Day Jackson’s studio is a favorite—there are so many amazing options to experience, many of them free! I also like to spend time with family and friends, usually over a delicious meal while exploring New York’s never-ending supply of restaurants. The idea for Beespace actually came from a late-night, post-dinner chat with a close friend of mine who has a tech incubator. I was sharing my frustrations with the nonprofit space and finally he said, 'Why don’t you start an incubator but for nonprofits?' A light bulb went off and two years of research and planning later, I launched Beespace.
Style: Downtown with a dash of boho.
