Hello! I'm Nicole Fichera.

I'm a musician and a designer, but more importantly, I'm a reformed workaholic that is newly appreciating every minute of my life. 



I'm genuinely obsessed with entrepreneurship and creativity.

I'm obsessed with figuring out what it takes to move from a beautiful fragile idea to a robust, resilient business.

I'm obsessed with creating systems that allow people to make a bet on themselves, to build their lives around what is most meaningful to them.



I've worked around startups for years, and I'm an expert on building urban innovation ecosystems. But while I love startups, you won't hear me talking about the hottest new app company or the latest big exit.

Instead, I like to zero in on the systems, spaces and frameworks that allow creative people to be their best selves, trust their instincts and design their lives with confidence. 




Described by Nicole Fichera...the ‘squishy stuff’ is the human glue that connects the components of the ecosystem.

It’s unusual for a designer to manage a building she helped to conceive.

Like most successful people, Nicole Fichera is not defined solely by her work.
