About the guest
Nick Green is Co-Founder & CEO of Thrive Market, a membership-based online market that makes healthy living easy and accessible for every American family. Since launching in 2014, Thrive Market has grown to more than 1 million paying members and become a touchstone example of a mission-driven company at scale. For every paid membership, Thrive Market donates a free year of membership to a family in need, student, teacher, veteran, first responder, or healthcare worker. The business has also been recognized as a leader in regenerative agriculture, carbon-neutral shipping, and Zero Waste and in 2020 became the nation’s largest grocer to receive B Corp Certification, as well as a Certified Great Place to Work. Originally from Minnesota, Green saw firsthand that many Americans across the country wanted a healthier lifestyle but lacked immediate access to healthy food or faced challenges due to the cost of healthy products. After graduating from Harvard and selling his first company (which made college test prep and college consulting more accessible to all), Green met his co-founders and set his sights on solving America’s food access problem. As CEO, Green has been recognized as a leader in both grocery and business, and this past year was selected as EY’s “LA Entrepreneur Of The Year” and one of Fast Company’s “Most Creative People in Business”. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Nick championed Thrive Market’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, seeding it with his own salary as a donation. To date, the company has raised more than $6M for Food Equality Now from Thrive Market members, employees, and partners, all of which went to support non-profit organizations addressing the root issues of food equality.
