Technology for Change: Flockd

Singlebrook talks with Green Spaces’ Co-founder Marissa Feinberg about Flockd. In November, Feinberg aims to disrupt social hierarchies and scale the magic found in her Green Spaces coworking communities (and beyond) with Flockd, a collaboration and productivity tool.

Singlebrook: Please give a brief overview of what your organization does.

Marissa Feinberg 1   Credit Eddie ElmiMarissa Feinberg: The organization that we’re launching is Flockd, Inc. It was inspired by the need for such a collaboration and productivity tool in coworking spaces. My coworking space, Green Spaces, is a shared coworking space in New York City filled with environmental and social entrepreneurs. They’re all doing really great work to change the world! We encourage collaboration at Green Spaces, however, the majority of connections occur when there is quite a bit of facilitation on my part and that of our Community Manager.

We wanted to create a way for people to feel they can freely connect with each other without having a facilitator so more great serendipities can happen more often. For example, you’re new at the space and you walk into the room and open your laptop -- you don’t know anyone around you. You don’t know if they’re open to talking or if they’re really busy. You don’t know what they do. We wanted to create a tool that can be used by anyone, anywhere (in a networking environment, at a cafe, at a coworking space) to put out there and say, “I’m open to connection.”
