We worked together  •  Co-founder, Flavorpill. Previously Co-founder, CEO, Netsetgoods.
Elizabeth is one of the few people I know who is highly skilled and accomplished in both the business and creative sides of building compani ... es. She can not only write the strategy and develop the budgets for how to scale a publishing business, but then go out and hire and train the team of writers and editors to execute against it. A rare talent.
