Connector, Innovator, Professor, Changemaker, & Social Entrepreneur. Exploring the Future of Work, a More Equitable World + Angel Investing 4 Impact.

Dr. Zelizer has over 30 years experience in the social impact sector. He has always been committed to fostering access to information, opportunity and impact. As an undergraduate at the University of Massachusetts he developed a periodic and informal newsletter (handwritten) of social justice events to share with his colleagues.

It is particularly during his Junior year abroad in Pecs, Hungary and when he returned to Pecs for two years as a Junior Fulbright Scholar that he saw how critical access to information and mentorship was to so many. One of the main reasons he landed a Fulbright scholarship was due to a very persistent mentor who strongly pushed him to apply for the life-changing experience.
