This way of acting started with the first of many “What the…. !?” moments nearly two decades ago.
One day while I was living in Durban, South Africa a man approached. He pointed to a large tanker heading out to sea and said, “How many people do you think are on that ship enslaved going somewhere they don’t want to go?” Just one week later, I was told by a friend that he was writing a book on the modern-day slave trade called, Not For Sale. This was the odd genesis of my groundbreaking non-profit, Not For Sale, co-founded with friend David Batstone, the author of said book.
Today, in addition to supporting thousands of survivors, Not For Sale works to gain access to communities where trafficking and environmental destruction originates. We then look for economically viable opportunities to be leveraged in the global marketplace; creating healthy jobs in the at-risk communities, and ultimately aiming to inoculate communities from these extreme harms.
This process led me to co-found a beverage company called REBBL.
When launched REBBL was one of the fastest growing natural organic beverages in the United States because it’s an amazingly delicious product and its impact grows as the company scales.
REBBL was just the start. Our San Francisco-based incubator, The Invention Hub, helped start or helped scale ten more successful impact ventures around the globe. From Dignita, a wildly successful brunch restaurant and culinary training center for at-risk people in Amsterdam to American Battery Technology Company, a battery recycling company, I am hoping to prove that there are in fact new (and profitable) approaches to doing good.
