Won't You Be My Neighbor: The Importance of Shared Experiences in Entrepreneurship

Matt Baysinger is the CEO of Swell Spark, which founded concepts such as Breakout KC and Blade & Timber. He's made it his mission to create places for people to gather and share experiences. Baysinger would share his key to scaling from just one location to operating 12 locations across the nation, with three openings in the last six months. Baysinger focuses on intentional relationship building. He challenges people to start with a small, but important step: ask your neighbor for some eggs. That simple "ask" can fuel the evolution of relationships, workplace cultures and communities.
