About this Discussion:
Disruptor - Did I get your attention? Either you were excited or rolled your eyes because I think we can all agree that this buzz word might be just a tad overused.
However, when it comes to today’s guest, this is truly a word to describe her.
Adele Archer, co-founder of Eterneva, is disrupting not just one, but two age-old industries. First, in diamond creation, and the second is the funeral industry. After losing a loved one, and trying to find the best way to honor their life, Adelle found herself less than enthused with any of her options.
In a true entrepreneur format, she reached out to her co-founder and together they started Eterneva. This company is making waves, and Adelle has recently been featured as Inc. Magazine’s 30 Under 30.
We learned more about how they are disrupting these industries, and what’s next for this driven entrepreneur.
