Recommendations

Rosa Storelli Advisor at Cashtivity recommended Cashtivity where Marissa is Co-Founder

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!

Nina Demediuk Advisor at Cashtivity recommended Cashtivity where Marissa is Co-Founder

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!

Lenore Kantor Co-Founder at Straight Up recommended Cashtivity where Marissa is Co-Founder

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.
