Dana Jacobs

I'm Dana and I'm working in climate policy ‚ÄĒ specifically focused on technologies that remove legacy carbon pollution from the atmosphere at the Carbon Removal Alliance. We're narrowing the gap between policymakers in Washington and innovators working on carbon removal technology across the country. I oversee our finance, grant management, operations, and communications. I have a comms, PR and public affairs background originally, leading public affairs at Carbon180, the first carbon removal think tank. During my time at Carbon180, I helped bring carbon removal into the national political consciousness, steering pressrooms across the country to examine and cover carbon removal more thoroughly. Before joining the carbon removal ecosystem, I helped launch early-stage tech companies, from autonomous vehicle startups to innovative retail companies. I attended Colgate University, and I currently live in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, NY with my partner. I am part of a wonderful animal rescue group in Brooklyn, so when I'm not working, I'm pulling strays from the street.

Happy to counsel early-stage company on PR, public launches out, and messaging. I can also help companies struggling with how to best staff their communications teams (i.e. when to contract with an agency vs hire in-house).
