Maren Keeley

Co-Founder Conscious Company Magazine


The panel conversation will be moderated by Maren Keeley who was a chef before starting Conscious Company Magazine.

Maren is inspired by kindness, integrity, generosity and humility. What gives Maren hope for the future? People. Not only young people who want careers that are interwoven with purpose, but customers who are caring more and more about the way products are made, what goes into them, and where they came from.


Robert Donegan

President, Ivar’s


Bob became President of Ivar’s in 2001. Five years after graduating from Yale’s School of Management, Bob jumped from the stability of American Can, a Fortune 100 company, back into the exciting chaos of his own consulting business and moved to Seattle so his wife could teach in the business school at University of Washington.

Over the next 10 years, he helped about 40 startups and growth companies raise (and spend) about $70 million dollars.

Molly Moon

Founder and Owner at Molly Moon Ice Cream


Ice cream makes people happy. It’s the simple truth that led Molly Moon Neitzel to open up her first scoop shop in 2008. Once a feisty kid with a big sweet tooth and even bigger plans to change the world, Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream is the product of Molly’s desire to create a vibrant, welcoming community gathering place for Seattlites.

Molly’s philosophy is that the shared love of ice cream brings people together for the common goal of pure happiness – and that’s a pretty big deal.

Dani Cone

Founder and CEO at Cone & Steiner, Fuel Coffee and High 5 Pie


Dani has three great loves: great coffee, great food, and community. In 2005, after over 12 years in the coffee industry, Dani opened Fuel Coffee, and by 2007 had expanded it to 3 locations. In 2008, during a troubled economy, Dani launched High 5 Pie to bring a little “delicious comfort” to tough times and grew it to be a thriving wholesale business.

With partners, Dani opened Cone & Steiner on Capitol Hill in January of 2014, followed by the Pioneer Square store that August.
