The Moxie Foundation was founded in 2011 by Irwin Zahn. Zahn began his storied career in 1954 in the garment district of New York City. A young entrepreneur filled with grit, vigor and a dream, Zahn grew his one-man business, the General Staple Company, into a global enterprise, Autosplice, Inc. After 57 years, Zahn sold his company and launched the Moxie Foundation with a vision to infuse entrepreneurial “moxie” into the greatest challenges facing society today.
The Foundation has identified four funding priorities to fulfill its mission: education, entrepreneurship, the environment, and personal health. The Moxie Foundation is honored to partner with local and global innovators who wake up every day in relentless pursuit of building a better world. Learn more about some of Moxie’s partnerships here.
