Steve founded the philosophy of cause capitalism. Cause Capitalism is the new capitalism—a kinder, gentler, more compassionate form of capitalism; “A new capitalism,” he says, “that even my children and grandchildren can embrace.” He Trademarked the words, cause capitalism, so he could control the definition: cause capitalism is when a for-profit business chooses as its partner a non-profit organization; not as a gimmick but as a true sustainable partner where a percentage of gross sales (not net sales) are given to a non-profit partner. Steve’s vision and hope is that cause capitalism will inspire and bless all families of the earth.
