Dr Sam Prince is a humanitarian, philanthropist, entrepreneur and medical doctor – a unique, multi-talented individual on a mission to help those less fortunate than himself.
He lives by a motto his mother gave him: “Expand your life to the limits of your mind and expand your mind to the limits of your life.”
Sam is both a visionary and a doer. Since founding Zambrero, now one of Australia’s fastest growing franchises, he has set up five other successful businesses with a humanitarian focus, including one not-for-profit, One Disease.
One Disease aims to eliminate disease from remote Indigenous communities, one disease at a time. At the moment Sam’s team are tackling crusted scabies, which affects 7 in 10 Indigenous children before they turn one and can lead to heart and kidney failure and ultimately, premature death.
In 2013, Sam founded Mejico, a Mexican tequila bar and restaurant located in Miranda and Sydney CBD, and most recently opened up INDU in Sydney, a South-Indian inspired restaurant which prides itself on entwining village culture with western curiosity.
Sam, reconnecting with his medical background, also founded Life Letters in 2014, a genetics testing company which is bringing genetic testing into the hands of the consumer and aims to help individuals become heroes of their own health by giving them access to their genetic data to help them make informed choices about their health.
Another of Sam’s most recent endeavours is Hit 100, a startup empowering individuals living with, or at risk of, diabetes to better manage their health. Hit 100 do this through the provision of healthy, science-based home-delivered meals, augmented by dietitian coaching and support.
There have been many accolades for Sam’s achievements in business and philanthropy along the way, summed up by GQ in its 2011 Men of the Year list,
