Shelby is the Program Manager for the M-Corps Program in New York City. The M-Corps program supports NY-based cleantech startups to get to market faster by reducing headaches associated with manufacturing. Shelby supports the startups with the short and long-term goals, develops workshops and events relevant to their design and manufacturing needs, and identifies mentors and technical experts that can help them meet their go-to-market goals.
Prior to joining SecondMuse, Shelby was the Business & Marketing Manager at Tomorrow Lab, a hardware design and engineering firm in NYC. During her six years there, Shelby helped the once scrappy startup to become a successful small business by running day-to-day operations, communications, and community outreach. Much of this outreach was directly related to cultivating a more inclusive and diverse community for women within the hardware space, which she still focuses her efforts on while running M-Corps.
Shelby has a BA in Literature from UNC Asheville, and a MPS in Publishing from George Washington University. She is a member of the International Women’s Leadership Association and an advocate for cultivating culture, ethics, and inclusion in design. She spends her free time biking, joining her bowling team on league night, and seeing live music.
