Elise Densborn is the co-CEO of Splendid Spoon, a direct-to-consumer meal delivery platform that offers ready-to-eat, plant-based meals. Densborn was first introduced to Splendid Spoon as a customer. After over a decade in the finance industry, she joined the Splendid Spoon team as a consultant in 2018 and quickly rose through the ranks in permanent roles as VP of finance and insights and COO, becoming co-CEO in 2021. Densborn’s immediate impact was undeniable, including her strategies to streamline the business model, connect with the avid customer base, and develop innovative products. Since the decision to become co-CEO with Nicole Centeno, the pair have expanded the menu to over 65 meal options, doubled the growth rate since 2020, and recently closed a $12 million series B funding round. Densborn believes that food is the source for joy and connection and plant-based is the future for both people and the planet.

Densborn earned her MBA at Northwestern University, where she was named a Youn Impact Scholar.
