Spigot, Inc. President, Ryan Stephens, spoke to FGCU Entrepreneurial Students yesterday evening and gave them a completely new insight into running a successful business with a competitive culture. He explained to the students about taking big risks and learning hard lessons, but being able to funnel those lessons into something productive. Ryan also stressed the importance of company culture and organization – stating that we organize around business units, so everyone everyday is able to look at their own profit & loss and meaningfully contribute to the organization’s bottom line everyday. He stressed that Spigot focuses on moving numbers up, instead of on processes and that we optimize for smart people that are competitive.
Students were extremely inspired by Ryan’s outlook and way of doing things and immediately starting asking great questions. We even received a thank you note from Professor Annie Stout stating, “Thanks so much for coming in, we appreciate your support for our students!”
