How Kim Malek Built Salt & Straw Ice Cream to Make a Positive Impact & Become a Force for Good


How can ice cream bring together a community and become a force for good? Kim Malek, CEO and founder of Salt & Straw Ice Cream didn’t even know how to make ice cream when she had the idea to start a gathering place where people could be themselves and find happiness in the shared experience of enjoying a sweet treat. But she curated the talent who could make her vision happen. She teaches you how to use your community to collectively create an incredible product, what could happen when you have the courage to put your vision out in the world, and how to be in business while also making a positive impact on the world.
