Starfish Impact was founded in 2005 by Marta Gazzera Ferro after spending years involved in the non-profit and philanthropic community as a volunteer. Marta sought to bring to her non-profit clients the same entrepreneurial spirit, business management skills, and deep relationships she brought to her work at Goldman Sachs and in international business.
The Starfish Impact team was created with this in mind, to connect talent and strategic thinking to organizations doing purposeful and meaningful work. The approach is simple – tackle client issues with the best resources, strategies, and initiatives. With Starfish Impact, clients get a team of experienced strategists that work with passion to achieve practical results.
In the past ten years, Starfish Impact has worked with organizations across California on projects ranging from day-to-day management and operations to multi-year strategic plans. Read more about our work here.
