Spigot, Inc’s President Ryan Stephens and a crew of Spigot, Inc’s best and brightest headed east to Beijing for the China Public Investor Presentation hosted by our parent company, Genimous.  Ryan and members of the Board spent a long afternoon answering tough questions for 30 investors and analysts, and by all accounts knocked it out of the park (as usual!).  But the real star of the show was the venue itself: the gorgeous and historic Genimous Palace HQ, known to the locals as “Sir Yu’s Mansion”.

“Is the Genimous headquarters really a palace?” you rightly ask?  Yes!  While Beijing is well-known for its modern architecture, it has a history stretching back 3000 years, and the Genimous building is a no-kidding palace in a complex that dates back to 1640.  Originally owned by the great-grandson of famed chieftain Nurhachi in the Qing dynasty, it was passed down through the hands of nobility and royalty and eventually came to be owned by Prince He Mianxun’s grandson Puyu in 1902 — hence, “Sir Yu’s Mansion”.  Today, it’s the headquarters of all the Genimous divisions.  Nice!
