A serial entrepreneur, Noah is the founder of six ventures, including two mega-successful food businesses — the West Coast Noah’s New York Bagels chain and the East Coast natural foods chain Bread & Circus now owned by Whole Foods. Six and a half years after founding Noah’s New York Bagels, he sold the business for $100 million. Brought up in a socialist and non-religious home, Noah is candid about how his ideas changed as he dealt with real life.
He is now a consultant to aspiring entrepreneurs, advisor to business school students, and a dynamic motivational speaker.
