CEO, Ace Development Fund
Growing up in affluent Manhattan Beach, California, Elisabeth was shocked when she went to Indonesia and later to Nepal and India and realized that many parts of the world lived in poverty. Elisabeth started working and living in Nepal and India for over 28 years and along with her co-workers, developed many different projects in Nepal and India including: pre-schools, children homes, literacy programs, community development programs, clinics, vocational and character training, widow’s homes, amongst others. Elisabeth realized that helping people help themselves was an essential part of seeing communities developed and started focusing on helping people in Nepal, India, Asia and Africa to develop businesses that would impact their communities for good. It was out of this passion that she became CEO of ACE Development Fund helping business people get involved to use their skills and talents to help parts of the world that need business to bring true development. Hear her journey of helping people through training, connecting, and creating opportunities through business.
This event includes a chance to network with like-minded people, share ideas and knowledge, and collaborate to help entrepreneurs, business people, students, investors transform the way you think about how you do business and invest in social impact.
