Elliot Rosenberg founded and runs Favela Experience, an online marketplace of authentic homestay and apartment rentals for travelers in Rio de Janeiro's safe and vibrant favelas. As a for-profit social enterprise, Favela Experience generates sustainable income for favela families while breaking negative stereotypes about these communities through cultural exchange.  
Since launching at the beginning of this year, the business has earned outstandingguest reviews and has been profiled in ForbesLAN Airlines, and this video from The New York Times. 
Favela Experience is now selling its affordable World Cup accommodations (as well as other products) exclusively through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign ending soon. 
Previously, Elliot graduated with a Bachelors in Commerce and a second major in Latin American Studies from the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia. In college, he was President of SEED, a global social enterprise consultancy, with 75 consultants at a time and clients ranging from Ashoka to a $20-million Mexican microfinance institution.
 He also worked on behalf of impact investment fund Village Capital at its portfolio company QMágico in São José dos Campos, São Paulo state. 
Although originally from Los Angeles, he now lives in Rio de Janeiro.
