“We are delighted that Steve Ells, founder and co-CEO of Chipotle will be joining us for the Summit and will share his inspiring and exemplary story in one of the opening keynotes,” Rauch continued. “Chipotle is one of the great business stories of the past several decades, as a company that deeply embodies the principles of Conscious Capitalism in an unexpected industry – fast food – with tremendous results. Steve and Chipotle serve as a guiding light to people who are looking for ways that business can truly change the way we relate to each other and to natural ecosystems.”
