About Elton Rivas

Elton is the founder/co-founder/advisor of businesses ranging from construction to footwear to tech start-ups. Elton has a background in corporate marketing, but left that world behind with a goal to reinvigorate the local business climate in Jacksonville, Florida.

To that end, he has launched CoWork Jax, downtown Jacksonville’s first coworking space, and co-founded One Spark, a six-day event for creators where they can connect with the people and resources they need to make their great ideas reality. One Spark is the World’s Largest Crowdfunding Festival.
