Celebrity keynote speaker for hire Kimbal Musk is a leading entrepreneur and environmentalist who is recognized as a thought leader in the future of innovation in technology and food sustainability. While many know him best as a top tech entrepreneur and investor alongside his brother Elon, Kimbal is also the founder of The Kitchen Café, LLC. which owns and operates a string of community restaurants in Colorado and Chicago, Illinois. He is also the co-founder of The Kitchen Community non-profit organization which plants vegetable gardens called “Learning Gardens” in schools and community locations to introduce children to sustainable food methods, teach them the importance of developing a healthy lifestyle and drive community engagement.
Kimbal’s first taste of entrepreneurship came in 1995 when he started a residential painting business straight out of college. That same year, Kimbal and Elon founded a company called Zip2 which helped provide online content for the New York Times and Chicago Tribune. 4 years later they sold the company for $307 million. He spent the next few years investing in software and tech companies including Elon’s X.com which eventually merged with PayPal and was acquired by eBay in 2002.
After overwhelming success in Silicon Valley, Kimbal moved to New York City to follow his passion for cooking at the French Culinary Institute. In 2004, he opened his first restaurant in Boulder, Colorado called The Kitchen Boulder. The restaurant is now considered one of America’s top restaurants according to industry publications including Food & Wine Magazine, Zagat’s and the James Beard Foundation. In addition to his own restaurant ventures and investments, Kimbal sits on the board of directors for Tesla, SpaceX and Chipotle Mexican Grill.
