Elisa GomezCOO & Co-Founder, Sunbox Inc. Elisa Gomez is the Co-Founder & Chief Operations Officer at Sunbox, Sunbox is a tech-enabled marketplace for healthy food that makes it quick and convenient to eat nutritiously at work through smart, self-service kiosks. Elisa spent her childhood in a small, rural town in El Salvador. It was a place where fast food was thought to be fruit you picked off a tree, and where the beauty and vibrancy of nature served as your home, office and playground. Having come to the United States at an early age, Elisa spent her career in banking and focused on helping local small businesses grow and succeed. Trying to juggle a hectic work schedule with a healthy lifestyle, Elisa became nostalgic for the ease of healthful eating she knew as a child. She realized the need for a convenient way to eat healthy while on the go and brought it up to her best friend, Vanessa. Serendipitously, Vanessa had come to the same realization, and hence Sunbox was born. Passionate about giving back to her community, Elisa takes pride in working with and supporting local small business owners. As COO of Sunbox, she is particularly active in helping provide opportunities to minority and women-owned businesses, growing the local economy and provide job opportunities to those facing barriers to employment. Outside of Sunbox, Elisa has an overwhelming love for coffee, salsas picantes and her dog Leo - not necessarily in that order.
