When Ben Cohen left school at 26 and started a little Vermont homemade ice cream parlor with his buddy Jerry Greenfield, he little dreamt the two would be creating an international phenomenon. The company became a household name, known both for their money-where-your-mouth-is commitment to social responsibility and their outrageous and freewheeling dedication to fun and hijinks. Now a “free agent” since the sale of the company in 2000, Ben continues to devote his tireless efforts to the betterment of humanity.
