Ryan Taft is the co-founder and CEO of STORYSOFT, co-founder of OnSpot Social, and a self-taught marketer.
For Ryan, there’s nothing in business more fulfilling than bringing a new idea to life and building a company around it. His love for building businesses started at an early age selling baseball cards at local card shows and then running a small concrete business in college.
Today, Ryan is putting his passion for marketing, and his entrepreneurial energy, into STORYSOFT — a fast-growing marketing software company who’s enabling brands to humanize their marketing through digital storytelling. Fortune 500 companies across verticals, from life sciences to luxury goods, use the STORYSOFT digital storytelling platform to create emotion-evoking digital stories that break through the clutter and build unbreakable bonds with customers.
Ryan believes that there are several key factors that go into creating successful companies, but few are more important than the power of relationships.
