Francesca De Gottardo

Her name is Francesca, she was born in Friuli, in Pordenone but she has lived in Pisa, in Syria near Aleppo, in Washington DC, in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and in Milan.

Today she is an entrepreneur, co-founder and CEO of Endelea, a benefit company that deals with ethical fashion. Her life is different every day, her rhythms are very uncomfortable, anxieties many, but also satisfactions. She found her dimension and the famous meaning of his life in being a bridge between two countries and two continents, in connecting people and skills, in creating value for others.

Aware of my privileges, I commit myself in my small way to get in touch with those I meet on my way.
