In the summer after Ford’s junior year in college, his mother, Helene Seeman, was hit and killed by a drunk driver. This turned his whole world upside down. After drifting through a few different industries, Ford’s daughter was born in 2016. Ford returned to the lessons he learned from his mother and dedicated himself to a life of giving back. He founded Forest Founders, a 501c3 dedicated to creating easy ways to negate carbon footprints, and Righteous Causes Inc., an innovator Incubator that helps budding entrepreneurs connect with and afford a suite of services including legal, marketing, accounting, website development and business coaching.
