I have been privileged to be the Educational Advisor for CASHTIVITY for 3 years. I have been proud to have worked alongside of Marissa who displays both the passion and determination needed for a Start Up Company. The project based learning tool which is CASHTIVITY is a great plus for the educational world of students as it promotes entrepreneurship and enhances the knowledge of financial literacy - skills much needed by todays students. All schools could use CASHTIVITY across a wide range of subjects and across year levels. It provides a platform for authentic learning to take place!
Marissa is a well seasoned entrepreneur with a passion and drive to succeed. She knows her business and market and has a keen 6th sense of what is important to pursue. Although a stickler for process, she is not a slave to it and does not let that get in the way of progress. I have really enjoyed working with Marissa and the rest of her team!
I've been really impressed with Cashtivity's model which encourages entrepreneurship for students. What an amazing way to empower schools, teachers and young kids by teaching about how to start a business at a young age. I think this approach has the potential to not only transform education, but to help the economy by creating a new generation of entrepreneurs.
I have been advising Marissa & her startup, Cashtivity, for more than 12 months now. In that time, Cashtivity has won a number of startup and EdTech awards, and has made a lot of progress with early-adopter schools, teachers, and students in the US & Australia.
