A deeper dive into Elisabeth's background:
This two time TEDx speaker was probably the only six year old with her own business cards, as such her identity formed in a way that was anything but normal. Her entrepreneur father ensured that on those cards, beneath her name, was the bold word “owner” and that she was empowered from a young age to think and act as such. With her first product on shelves as a teenager, it’s no surprise, that even though her post business school career took her to Wall Street, she was always an entrepreneur at heart.
Since leaving the corporate world, she has been involved in a myriad of ventures and her ability to combine business and impact for the past 15 years has been featured by the United Nations Global Entrepreneurship Congress, TEDx, AMEX OPEN, NBC, Forbes, GQ, New York Live, NYC Media TV, The Soho Collective, AOL Ventures Panel of New Ideas, Heritage Radio, WS Radio and many others. Her inspiring story is a first hand account of how to elevate one's personal and professional life.
As Founder and Owner of Caffè Unimatic, Inc., a woman owned coffee company born of a family legacy and the surprise of a lifetime, Elisabeth is changing the conversation at the breakfast table. Caffè Unimatic is the proud purveyor of the last original “Unimatic” coffee pots in the world that were conceived in Brooklyn and made in Italy in the 1960s (watch "How a coffee pot changed my life" on TEDx). While growing the company, she started realizing just how much her Dad taught her all those mornings sitting around the family table drinking coffee. She began using her own story as the basis for research around what gave her the confidence to start something with no guarantee it would succeed. This research compelled her to co-found Legacy Out Loud, to pay forward this gift of confidence to young women everywhere (watch "The most powerful question you've never considered" on TEDx).
Due to her wide range of experience and creativity, she has been invited to speak, consult, create and lead programs around the world on the topics of entrepreneurship, innovation, leadership and communication. She is Co-Founder of Master Your Mission, an intensive international leadership development course for high achieving women. She is a co-leader of Infrastructure Group’s advisory board activities for transatlantic clients in her roles as both a member of the IGI board in New York and as Managing Director, IGI London.
Elisabeth earned both her BA (International Business and Art) and MBA (Management) degrees with highest academic distinction from Wagner College. She was recruited to Wagner as part of the Women’s Division I soccer team and has served for more than ten years in various alumni capacities. Elisabeth presently serves as Vice President of the NAA Board of Directors at the college, is a guest professor, Co-Chair of the Young Alumni Steering Committee in the Business Department and is spearheading the creation of The Cardiello Fund for Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
A Dame of the Sovereign Order of Malta and of the Royal House of Savoy in Italy, Elisabeth is famous for asking hard questions, Disney-character-like facial expressions, doing handstands in crazy places and urging people to linger just a little longer at the table together, over coffee.
