This Just In: Apple to Produce Faces Shields & Donate Masks!

Apple CEO, Tim Cook, announced on Twitter today that “Apple will design, produce and distribute more than 1 million face shields a week.” According to an article on Linkedin, “The protective gear will first be distributed to medical workers in the U.S. with a goal to expand distribution overseas. The tech giant has also sourced 20 million face masks to donate globally in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus.” “We’re working continuously and closely with governments at all levels to ensure these are donated to places of greatest need,” said Cook. He also stated “Our design, engineering, operations and packaging teams are also working with suppliers to design, produce and ship face shields for medical workers.”According to CNN, “The first shipment arrived to hospitals in Silicon Valley and will be shipped to other hospitals in the United States.”

Since we are most definitely in a shortage of supplies, it’s good to know that the owners of the products we use (and rely on) everyday are trying to give back to the community and slow the spread of the virus. The sooner we all work together, and accept that this is our new way of living for the time-being – the faster this will be over.

Spigot, Inc. is doing everything they can to keep employees at a healthy distance and keep the organization running. We are extremely fortunate to be in the position we are and will continue on this path. Spigot, Inc. is also STILL hiring – our employees are working from home and we are setting up new employees with work stations to do the same.

A Look into Spigot, Inc. Company Culture

“Train employees so they can leave, Treat them well enough so they don’t want t0.” – an awesome quote by Richard Branson. Spigot, Inc. has many things to offer, but our BIGGEST asset is our employees, and we believe this quote sums up our company culture extremely well. Not only does Spigot, Inc. “train” their employees – but they give everyone a huge opportunity to learn and to grow within the organization. We have very minimal process, so employees are granted the freedom, not only to express their ideas, but actually put them into action. Spigot, Inc. employees are also given the opportunity to fail. We know “failure” in the work place isn’t something most people are used to being accepted, but Spigot, Inc. knows – that is the only way to grow. Everyone gets the chance to take risks, fail, learn from their mistakes and come up with a better “game-plan” or solution next time. Just this concept alone breeds employee happiness. Employees getting the opportunity to also acheive big wins and successes (along with failure) give them the confidence to make business decisions and earn respect from peers and executives in the organization.

On top of this, we all structure the teams by business unit instead of by position or department. We have Media Buyers, Business Analysts and Developers/Engineers on every team (or in every business) and they all work collaboratively on their specific product. This way – every individual is actually contributing to the bottom line of our business.

Spigot, Inc. has a ton of perks on a professional level – we invest in our employees and make sure they are on the path to growth. On top of all of this, Spigot, Inc. also provides perks to take the “leg-work” out of everyday tasks. We stock our office with a ton of snacks (on request by employees), beer, fancy coffee, cold brew coffee on tap, bagels for breakfast, an entire fridge full of soft-drinks and (OBVIOUSLY) La Croix. We offer free lunch twice a week (with left-overs for the rest of the week), team-building trips, pop-up parties and beer-pong on Friday afternoons. The office is also fully stocked with games; Huge flat screens with Nintendo Switch & Xbox, Darts, Foos Ball, Ping Pong, Connect Four, Hungry Hungry Hippos (lol) and Spigot branded corn hole. We believe that breaks are necessary (and we’re all super competitive) so we’re encouraged to take breaks and play games. We are offered a flexible work schedule, no one has specific times they need to come in the office or leave, getting our work done – and doing it well is top priority, not how long employees sit in their seats.

We also work heavily with FGCU to hire talented interns and turn them into successful employees. Most of our interns have gotten full-time positions here and have grown in their career.

Spigot, Inc. company culture makes employees WANT to come to work everyday. We have an extremely low “turn-over” rate and a large handful of employees who have made it over 10 years. Spigot, Inc. is truly a family – we all hang out inside and outside of work and relocating is easy, because it’s a great place to make friends! Check out our Linkedin Life page to see more about our culture, benefits and employees.

2020 – New Year, New Things to Do Around Here!

Spigot, Inc. is located on the beautiful coast of South West FL, just 15 miles away from Naples, Sanibel/Captiva Islands and 40 miles from Marco Island.  We are super thankful to live in such a cool location (And SUCH warm weather!).

Of course Spigot, Inc. has researched the best things to do – and we’re here to share it with you!

  1. Mysterious domed structures on the southern tip of Marco Island (This one DOES require a boat, but no worries – all the islands are crawling with boat rental places!)
  2. Tin City! Tin City offers you the chance to step back in time to an era when rustic, maritime character and charm were at the heart of Naples’ fishing industry; as well as eateries serving fresh seafood!
  3. Naples Winter Wine Festival (Okay, you’re allowed a cheat day). Located at the Ritz Carlton Naples – the event brings together renowned vintners, chefs and Master Sommeliers with wine enthusiasts and philanthropists for a three-day festival themed “All We Need is Love” in order to raise millions of dollars for underprivileged and at-risk children.
  4. Barefoot Beach Preserve – One of the region’s last undeveloped barrier islands, it feature vast tracks of natural land that are perfect for idyllic walks. Families are drawn here, too, by the gentle, shallow waters, helping make it a regular fixture on lists of America’s best beaches.

Spigot, Inc. judges FGCU Entrepreneurial Contest

Three Spigot, Inc. employees got the awesome opportunity yesterday to judge the FGCU Entrepreneurial contest in the Emergent Technology Institute Building. FGCU has an amazing program for young adults with a passion and drive to be an Entrepreneur called, The Runway Program. According to their website, The FGCU Runway Program is a free business incubator open to students and alumni that are accepted into the program. Currently located off campus at the FGCU Emergent Technologies Institute Building, participants have access to two 1,300 ft2 shared work spaces, computers, cameras, audio equipment, design and development software, and regular mentoring fromt heir expert faculty, staff, and community startup coaches.

Participants are required to regularly meet with assigned Runway Program Advisers to receive feedback on ideas and progress, in addition to setting goals towards launching their venture. The Runway Program follows the Lean Start-Up methodology. Participants identify and validate the existence of a problem or opportunity, and then develop solutions and a plan that they can test on real people. At the end of the 16-week program, student participants have the opportunity to pitch for equity-free seed funding to launch their businesses. 

The program has come to an end and all the students got put in different rooms for a “Shark Tank” style presentation. Spigot, Inc.’s Connor Grevel, Ben Tucker and Sean Henry sat in the judges seat and saw all kinds of creative business ideas. From Bio-degradable sunscreen, YouTube Channels, Positive rap artists, and online organizing tools to name a few. It was a great experience for our Spigot, Inc. employees and the students, especially students with advertising campaigns. Spigot, Inc. was able to not only understand their product, but give them a few pointers on how to better run traffic for their business.

Our involvement with FGCU, specifically the Entrepreneurial college has been extremely beneficial for both our business and their students. 1/4 of Spigot, Inc. employees are FGCU Alumni and we are looking forward to judging more contests and continuing to hire students!
