Austin Stofer has entrepreneurship in his blood. Being born into a family of business creators, he found the drive to start his own business at a young age. A few days after his 8th birthday, Austin invested his birthday money into a snow cone machine and began hauling a wagon around his neighborhood selling snow cones. After cornering the snow cone market, Austin took on launching businesses in marketing, corporate branding and application development. Now, as a Chapman University graduate, Austin is passing his startup knowledge onto other entrepreneurs.

Austin's goal with Sieo is to help people take their dreams and make them professional realities.
