Steve Curtis is an investor, entrepreneur, adventurer and revolutionary thought leader. Raised by a low-income single mother, Steve started his first business at 19 with a $500 credit card and grew it into a business with a half-billion dollar valuation before he sold it. Today, he leads a group of globally-impactful companies and non-profits spanning natural pharmaceuticals, consumer package goods, film, hospitality, technology and venture capital.
Steve’s career trajectory changed radically at age 24 when he was diagnosed with a terminal cancer for which there was no cure and only 2 years left to live. Steve hired an MD, built a research team and traveled the world to develop a cure. From researchers at global expert centers like Yale and Stanford to healers and shamans in far-off jungles, he sought to cure the incurable. Learning he couldn’t make a drug fast enough, he followed the trail of “spontaneous remission,” setting the prognosis-defying goal of summiting Everest instead. Five years later, he had done both. Healing without the use of any modern medicine, he was left with unquestionable truth and a vision for changing medicine globally.
Steve channeled his passion into writing a book to teach his insights, creating a foundation to advance research in healing, and developing a number of businesses that all center around creating the state of awareness that allowed him to heal.
Steve has become an influential thought leader in international politics and has influenced the lives of millions of people through the products he has created. His venture capital business is advancing new perspectives in science, medicine and technology with investments in AI, quantified self, VR, AR, spiritual science, block-chain, and psychedelic medicine.
