Strategic Partnerships Manager
As the Strategic Partnerships Manager, Michela supports the Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships and the Strategic Partnerships team in the execution of multiple Greentown Launch programs simultaneously. Typically sponsored by one or more corporate partners, Greentown Launch is a six-month accelerator program hosted at Greentown Labs focused on fast-tracking entrepreneurs with the mentors, team members, and business and technical resources they need to launch successful ventures.
Michela graduated from the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies and a concentration in International Environmental Policy. She has gained experience working for several organizations addressing issues of sustainability and climate change from different angles. Most recently for Seventh Generation on the Protection for All Campaign conducting background research and providing marketing support for the compostable diaper initiative.
She is passionate about exploring ways in which climate change can be framed creatively to advance sustainability. This was most evident in her completion of an undergraduate thesis titled, “Environmental Vulnerability for Future Social Unrest: A Comparative Index,” which explored climate issues through the lens of international security.
Despite being a Massachusetts native, Michela prefers to spend her time skiing and hiking in the Green Mountains of Vermont or at any beach. She also enjoys gathering with friends to win trivia at the local bar.
