Elisabeth grew up in Styria where the foundation of her grounded and heart-in-the-right-spot personality was built. Her sense for culture and design led her to several places to experience different ways of life – always trying to see things through a habitants lense.
After selecting Vienna as her new homebase, she finished her studies in Economics and Business Administration and represented the Austrian Government in foreign economic policy in Brussels, Geneva and Washington DC. Her intuition for trending topics then led her to a political startup. She participated in the development team of independent candidate Irmgard Griss in the Austrian Presidential Electoral Campaign, which started campaigning from scratch. Being passionate about conceptualizing und creating projects, she subsequently joined the Business Riot Festival’s team as head of operations.
