Catchiní Up With Ö Ryan Chacon
Life after the Perdue School has been nothing short of amazing. For starters, Iím in Chile. I couldnít have imagined that just three years after finishing my M.B.A. that Iíd be living 5,000 miles away from Maryland for seven months. Itís crazy, itís awesome, and Iím still soaking in the incredible journey that Iíve just begun.
Stupil. This word, my company Ė this is what my next half a year (and hopefully much, much longer) will be dedicated to. In December, my business partner and co-founder
Stupil is a social e-commerce platform embedded within a media player that makes it simple for consumers to instantly buy, sell and donate online through social media outlets that already exist.
Iíve always been an entrepreneur. From the online paintball business that Ben and I started in middle school to Knollege, the education social networking site I created with Perdue School grads Hunter McIntyre and Charles Gray, with which we won the 2010 Bernstein Achievement Award for Excellence.
Itís an amazing experience, seeing my visions take shape right before my eyes. Itís hard work but worth it every day. Iím looking forward to spending the next few months down here in Chile Ė the weather is great, the culture is phenomenal and Stupil becomes more of a reality with each day that passes.
