Art of the Hustle

Kimbal Musk - Co-Founder, The Kitchen Community

Kimbal Musk is a chef, restauranteur, and philanthropist. His mission is to pursue an America where everyone has access to real food. Named a Global Social Entrepreneur by the World Economic Forum, Kimbal is the co-founder and Chairman of three real-food companies that are rapidly scaling across the US.

The Kitchen Restaurant Group—including Next Door, Hedge Row, and The Kitchen, serve real-food at every price point. The restaurants source food from American farmers, stimulating the local farm economy to the tune of millions of dollars a year. His non-profit organization, Big Green, builds permanent, outdoor Learning Garden classrooms in hundreds of underserved schools across America. His tech-enabled, urban farming company, Square Roots, grows hyper-local, real food year-round while empowering the next generation of farmers.

Kimbal joins us to talk about how, in their early 20s, he and his brother Elon courageously built out their network through cold calling some of the most powerful people in the country, serving on the board for Tesla and SpaceX, and how he effectively scaled his non-profit, Big Green to reach over 350,000 students.
