You might know Steve Case as the billionaire entrepreneur who co-founded AOL. What you may not know is that Steve is also passionate about health, an interest with a strong personal connection as his brother Daniel lost his life to brain cancer at age 44 back in 2002.
Steve is also a member of the Giving Pledge and an investor in one of my favorite fast casual restaurants, sweetgreen. After reading his op-ed, "The Future of Food Is Food," I thought Steve was a "mindbodygreen kinda guy." Anna Williams and I sat down to talk with Steve about everything from the future of food to what makes people successful.
On the future of food:
Food is a $5 trillion industry globally. And for the last 10 or 20 years, it’s been dominated mostly by big companies focused on near-term profitability, using ingredients that aren’t necessarily healthy. But health care starts at the end of the fork: what you consume impacts how you live and how long you live.
