Vision

Our vision is only slightly loftier than sending a man to the moon. Knit Marketing exists to create quality jobs for untapped youth, while we grow our clients’ web presence through digital content marketing. We’ll equip hundreds of businesses with the tools they need while creating educational and career opportunities for thousands of teens and young adults.

Why "Knit"?

  • Because we're the stitch or connection between youth experts and the businesses that need them.
  • Because we use a lot of hashtags, which look like knitting yarn.
  • Because we're a tight-knit team.

Amazing Advisory Board

Libby Jacobson

Social Enterprise Consultant

Work History:
For 13 years I worked on Wall Street in equity research and institutional sales. I lived through a scandal and bankruptcy (Drexel Burnham Lambert) and a buyout (PaineWebber- UBS). The past 17 years have been gloriously spent raising four children and serving as a serial volunteer. Causes I’m most passionate about are Educational Equity and the Homeless Crisis. I have an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin and recently earned a master’s degree from USC Marshall School of Business in Social Entrepreneurship. Currently, I am proud to be working with two other social enterprises addressing affordable housing in LA and financial solutions for the unbanked.
Something fun about me:
I still love to read a real newspaper. My favorite thing to do is cut out recipes from the NY Times - I have huge binders of them. The only problem is- I never cook any of the recipes!!! (I’m not sure if that is fun… but it’s me!)

Estelle Reyes

Dir. Community Engagement | LACI

Work History:
Estelle Reyes is the Director of Community Engagement at Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator, focusing on creating a bridge for all talent to access the cleantech sector.
