A journalist for over 15 years, Elisa has carved a strong niche covering stories of social innovation and social impact. Most recently, Elisa is the author of In the Business of Change: How social entrepreneurs are disrupting business as usual, profiling entrepreneurs around the world using innovation and savvy to tackle social and environmental challenges. Elisa is the publisher & editor-in-chief of SEE Change Magazine, a digital publication of social entrepreneurship that she co-founded almost 10 years ago – and the host of its podcast. Elisa has been a regular columnist on matters of social entrepreneurship for the Financial Post and has been published in the Globe & Mail, Toronto Star, Reuters, Zoomer, Elle Magazine, among other publications.
