Catchinâ€™ Up With â€¦ Ryan Chacon
Life after the Perdue School has been nothing short of amazing. For starters, Iâ€™m in Chile. I couldnâ€™t have imagined that just three years after finishing my M.B.A. that Iâ€™d be living 5,000 miles away from Maryland for seven months. Itâ€™s crazy, itâ€™s awesome, and Iâ€™m still soaking in the incredible journey that Iâ€™ve just begun.
Stupil. This word, my company â€“ 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.
Iâ€™ve 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.
Itâ€™s an amazing experience, seeing my visions take shape right before my eyes. Itâ€™s hard work but worth it every day. Iâ€™m looking forward to spending the next few months down here in Chile â€“ the weather is great, the culture is phenomenal and Stupil becomes more of a reality with each day that passes.
