Liz Powers is the co-founder of ArtLifting, one of the most innovative companies out there (in my opinion). She’s also a Forbes 30 Under 30 social entrepreneur. Her for profit, do-good and do-well, company helps homeless and disabled individuals sell their artwork so they can put a roof over their heads and access new opportunity. ArtLifting has built the solution to a problem into their product. Their economic model is the way of the future. Liz boot-strapped the company to six figures and now has investors like Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS shoes. Liz has been featured on national TV programs like the TODAY show. Some of her clients include Google and Staples. And she’s just getting started!
