Get to know the Lowcountry’s local-independent business community, one changemaker at a time. “Small Talks, Big Ideas with Steve” is a podcast that features local business insights and updates, alongside interviews with members, sponsors, and supporters.
For our 23rd episode, Steve sits down with Jeffrey M. Zucker, a serial entrepreneur born and raised in Charleston, SC and currently living in Denver, CO. He graduated from Boston University’s Questrom School of Business, where he founded multiple successful real estate businesses through Saltshaker Holdings, the operating company he founded and runs as President and CEO.
Jeffrey’s other endeavors include film production, cannabis, hospitality, tech, and more. His notable companies include Green Lion Partners and Big Smits Entertainment. Additionally, Jeffrey, who serves as the Vice Chair of the Board of the Marijuana Policy Project, is a philanthropist in the areas of Drug Policy and Criminal Justice Reform, healthcare, and education. His business decisions are determined not only based upon making a profit, but also—inspired by his late father’s mission of Tikkun Olam (repair the world)—with the goal of improving the lives of others as much as possible. Additionally, Jeffrey hosts the podcast People are the Answer where he interviews innovators in social impact.
