Trinity University's 2018-19 Policy Maker Breakfast Series presents Daniel Lubetzky '90, founder and CEO of KIND, with a lecture titled, "Not Only For Profit: Values-Driven Growth." This special event is part of Trinity's 150th anniversary celebration, marking the first alumnus speaker at the Policy Maker Breakfast Series. The breakfast and presentation will be held at the Omni Hotel at the Colonnade - Grand Ballroom. Breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m.
Daniel Lubetzky, founder and CEO of KIND, is on a mission to make the world a little kinder one snack and act at a time. KIND created a new healthy snacking category in 2004 with the introduction of its first fruit and nut bars. Established as a not-only-for-profit, KIND is also committed to using its business as a vehicle for social change. Its KIND Movement inspires everyday acts of kindness (five million and counting), and The KIND Foundation works to create kinder, more empathetic communities.
A social entrepreneur working to build bridges between people, Lubetzky founded PeaceWorks Inc., a business that fosters cooperative ventures among neighbors in the Middle East. He is a co-founder of Maiyet, a fashion brand that partners with artisans to promote entrepreneurship in developing economies, and the OneVoice Movement, an international grassroots effort that amplifies the voice of moderate Israelis and Palestinians seeking to end the conflict. In 2015, president Barack Obama and secretary Penny Pritzker named him a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship for his investment in emerging entrepreneurs. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller Do the KIND Thing. Lubetzky has a bachelor’s degree in economics and international relations from Trinity University and a J.D. from Stanford Law School.
