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 fulfills its mission to enrich communities and empower changemakers by investing in – and partnering alongside innovators who take creative risks in the name of building a better world.
