We told our story onstage at TEDx Fulton Street!


This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. This brave account of entrepreneurship and self discovery shows how one truth can change a founder’s life. The story begins when she opens a closet in her father’s office, and ends with a life long mission of preserving legacies through story.

One day, lifelong entrepreneur Elisabeth Cardiello unexpectedly discovered that she had inherited the last few thousand original models in the world of a rare, vintage, Italian-made coffee pot. In the wake of processing this new turn in her life, she came to redefine herself and her business – around storytelling.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
