Elisa Camahort Page made her mark in social media and tech history when she co-founded BlogHer. Since selling BlogHer, she’s focusing even more on social impact and politics. She still has a lot to say about tech. Elisa hosts The Op-Ed Page podcast.

"Don’t make social media platforms owned by these big conglomerate companies the only place where you put your stuff."

She also authors the weekly newsletter This Week-ish. Elisa spoke about her rise in tech entrepreneurship, Clubhouse and the balance between politically vocal and a businesswoman.
