Hats off to SpotX’s dynamic duo!
CEO & co-founder Mike Shehan and COO/CFO & co-founder Steve Swoboda have been hand selected by an independent panel of judges as finalists in the 2013 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. Mike and Steve are among just 24 other entrepreneurs up for the award in the Mountain Desert Region.
Mike and Steve believe the secret to being a successful entrepreneur is unwavering tenacity and the ability to execute on innovative ideas that help move an industry forward. They believe in a “fail fast”philosophy and are not afraid to take big risks in order to develop market-leading technology. They both know personal sacrifice – from Mike selling his historic house in Boulder or Steve taking out a second mortgage on his home to keep the company running. Over the years, they have embodied true entrepreneurial spirit – standing firm in their conviction that they have a great idea, and working to build the right solutions for the market in order to create a successful company.
Mike and Steve are committed to constantly innovating video advertising technology, contributing to the community, and creating a positive work/life balance at SpotX where employees love coming to work each day.
SpotX is honored to have these two awesome leaders and Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalists as the heads of our company. Congrats Mike and Steve!
