GREG SPIELBERG

Director of Cities

Greg is Director of Cities and is based in New York City. He leads the Futureworks Shops program as well as helping spearhead companywide storytelling and content. 

A former journalist, Greg is passionate about building community-based economic development programs that help transform essential sectors in cities, states and regions. Emergent economies are scary and lonely for entrepreneurs, risky for investors and governments and confusing to the public. By bringing everyone along together through constant offline convenings and online stories, that fear quickly melts away and is replaced by excitement, hope, collaboration and open conversations. The results are dynamite transformation, common understanding, a wealth of new opportunities and good old-fashioned fun.  

Greg graduated from Bowdoin College and the Missouri School of Journalism. He’s written for Bloomberg, Businessweek, Nieman Journalism Lab and the Vail Daily. Before joining SecondMuse, Greg founded Imagination in Space, an experiential agency, which was acquired by 2M in 2017.

His work has been covered by the New York Times, Associated Press, Vice, Time and Mashable.
