I wanted to find more out about how this works and more of the background story so I interviewed the founder and CEO Andrea Demichelis who is part of our “Save the World” group on Whatsapp.
Andrea is a remarkable young man, 25 years old – an Italian living in Paris, trying to MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Elliot for Water the Social Good Search Engine
First, who are you and what do you do…
My name is Andrea Demichelis and I’m a 25-year-old Italian man working to leave a positive impact in the world. After my business studies in Paris, I understood that I was not supposed to follow the conventional Wall Street path, but rather creating something of my own. Soon enough, this “something of my own” became “something that could really impact the world” and I ended up founding Elliot For Water. Elliot For Water is just like Google, the difference is, it creates water every time you use it.
