Gavin Armstrong - Founder & CEO of Lucky Iron Fish

Today, we’re interviewing Gavin Armstrong, Founder & CEO of Lucky Iron Fish.

As a young kid, Gavin was bullied extensively, and he channeled those negative experiences into a strong drive to become a success in the world of high finance. During his university experience, he volunteered in refugee camps in north Kenya and saw firsthand the level of abject poverty, malnutrition and hidden hunger that existed in the world. Determined to make a difference, Gavin decided to channel his drive and energy into addressing this problem. And from that, the Lucky Iron Fish was born--an iron ingot that's making a massive difference in helping cure the iron deficiency that roughly half the world’s population suffers from.

Gavin was recognized as the first Canadian to receive the William Jefferson Clinton Award for International Work Against Hunger. His story is one of inspiration, perseverance and hope. Enjoy this eye-opening conversation with Gavin Armstrong.
