Marisela Angulo, Founder
Effecting Change and Supporting Changemakers through Purpose-Driven Marketing
I am a marketing and communications professional living in Madrid, Spain. I have an unusual background that includes attending both philosophy and business schools. I've been a non-profit Executive Director as well as an author publicist and coach. I am a recipient of communication awards in the US from various states and the National Federation of Press Women. After more than a decade working in marketing and managing nonprofit organizations, I founded Angulo Marketing & Design, driven by purpose and committed to amplifying the impact of Changemakers.
Before Madrid, I lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I led nonprofits to expand capacity in their business and marketing systems. At the time, Santa Fe had the most nonprofits per capita in the United States, and yet nonprofits had a reputation of being chaotic and disorganized, in some cases more cause-driven than effective. On the other hand, marketing was often seen as the manipulative sales-driven branch of “big bad business.” I realized I’d become uniquely qualified to bring business and marketing expertise to purpose-driven sectors.
At Angulo Marketing I enjoy leading projects focused on nonprofit organizations, activists, authors, trauma survivors, and raising the voices and influence of Black, Indigenous, and people of color.
I also mentor WOC entrepreneurs at various points of their careers. The people I work with say my optimistic yet practical nature makes their goals and aspirations feel attainable and that I can bring a sense of lightness and ease to complex situations.
I love organizing social events and bringing diverse and amazing people together. On the weekends you can find me traveling around Europe or enjoying the best rooftops in Madrid making new friends.
