Elizabeth Stefanka is the CEO and founder of Stefanka Inc, an apparel tech company. When she was 16 years old, Elizabeth often found herself frustrated with the fact that the fashion industry applied standardization downwards in a one size fits all approach. She wanted to create a concept that would somehow counter and reverse the dominant model of consumption and production. This model currently focuses on the mass production of standardized goods. In contrast, Elizabeth advocates for a buying process where the customer is at the heart of everything.
Elizabeth Stefanka worked in 7 different countries before launching her company in 2014 and holds a Master degree (M. Sc.) in International Business from HEC Montreal and a Bachelor degree (B.A. Sc.) in Consumer Sciences from Laval University, in Canada. She also studied at HEC Montreal’s Summer School of Management, Creativity and Innovation, has a License degree from the European Packaging School in France and studied Fashion Design in Quebec City prior to her graduate studies. She is currently based in Montreal, Canada.
