After his brush with death and his extraordinary recovery, Stefan decided to dedicate his life to helping others achieve the unreasonable. Today, he helps other entrepreneurs achieve ambitious and outrageous goals in their businesses and lives.
In 2005 Stefan started teaching two courses at Columbia University’s Center for Environmental Research and Conservation: Environmental Entrepreneurism and Environmental Intrapreneurism. His courses are for those who want to start their own sustainable companies and others who want to introduce sustainable products and services within the corporate structure.
Stefan has been featured in media outlets including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg TV, The CBS Evening News, Good Morning America, The Daily News, The New York Post, The New York Times Magazine, NPR, Business Of Success Radio and WBAI, among others.
Stefan is an adventurous traveler, who often combines travel with volunteer work—and of course a little socially beneficial small business coaching! He has visited more than 30 countries, many of them among the poorest and neediest in the world.
Stefan currently lives with his wife in the best borough in New York City: Brooklyn.
