It turns out it saved him, leading to the remaking of his brand design studio (Trumpet) into the launchpad for an entrepreneurial ecosystem that's at the center of a refocused, civically reengaged New Orleans. Robbie now runs, designs, and invests in food companies with social and environmental impact such as Good Spread, a nut butter company launched from a non-profit maker of a therapeutic peanut butter that treats and cures kids suffering from Severe Acute Malnutrition. Along the way, he co-founded Idea Village, Naked Pizza (a healthy delivery pizza company expanded internationally and sold to Mark Cuban), and maintains a portfolio of food-based companies under Innisfree.
