As the founder of Ethos Water, Peter Thum turned his idea of getting clean water to children in the developing world into a successful social venture. In building a brand, a business, and a self-funding philanthropic engine directly connecting consumption to a related social mission, Thum forged new ground and created a model that others could follow. Over the course of six years, he led Ethos to become a national brand in the US and to raise more than $6 million in humanitarian water grants and help over 420,000 people worldwide. Ethos was acquired by Starbucks in 2005 and Thum stayed on through to 2008, managing Ethos and serving as a director of the Starbucks Foundation.
More recently, Thum co-founded and is the CEO of Fonderie 47, an organization that is taking AK-47s from war zones in Africa and turning them into jewelry, watches, and accessories with proceeds going towards two missions in war-torn regions of Africa: weapon destruction programs and youth leadership programs. It has destroyed over 34,000 assault rifles in African conflict zones. He also is CEO and founder of Liberty United, which recycles illegal guns from American cities into jewelry that funds programs to reduce gun violence.
From thriving in a competitive business environment to showing the importance of finding your passion in life, Peter Thum inspires audiences with his remarkable story of seeing wrongs in the world and using his drive and business acumen to right them.
