Sharon Prince, Founder & CEO, Grace Farms Foundation
In Conversation with Ravi Belani, Adjunct Lecturer, Management Science & Engineering, Stanford University

Sharon Prince is the CEO and Founder of Grace Farms Foundation, a new kind of boundary-defying public space in New Canaan, Connecticut, that has become widely known as a global humanitarian and cultural center.

Grace Farms is the platform for the Foundation and its interdisciplinary humanitarian mission to pursue peace through nature, arts, justice, community, faith, and Design for Freedom, a global new movement to eliminate forced labor from the building materials supply chain.

Since opening, Grace Farms has garnered numerous prestigious awards for contributions to architecture, environmental sustainability, and social good, including the AIA National 2017 Architecture Honor Award and the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize.

Prince also co-founded Grace Farms Foods, which offers coffees and teas that demonstrate what the Foundation advocates for ethical and sustainable supply chains. 100% of the profits from Grace Farms Foods supports the Design for Freedom movement to eliminate forced labor from the building materials supply chain.

In recognition of Prince’s impactful work, Fast Company named her to its list of the Most Creative People in Business 2022: For Cleaning up Construction, and the AIA NY and Center for Architecture recognized her with the NYC Visionary Award.

This appearance by Sharon Price is part of the Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders series. You can find more talks at youtube.com/ecorner where we bring founders, investors and industry influencers to center stage and invite them to share what it takes to become a disruptor.
