Foosball Hall is being led by Stan Spinner. Stan received his undergraduate degree in philosophy from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. It was here that Stan was first introduced to foosball. His fraternity had a table and he immediately enjoyed the game. At his fraternity there were always people lined up waiting to play.
During his undergraduate days, Stan managed a pool hall. This was valuable because it taught him general business skills, paid well, and required his time at night, preventing a conflict with his schooling. Stan recognized that his ultimate dream was to create his own business, to be his own boss. With this in mind, and recognizing his reasonable assessment that his business skill set was not totally complete, Stan decided to enroll in The University of Wisconsin’s MBA Entrepreneurship Program.
At this point Stan was aware that having a foosball hall was a viable business opportunity. While the immediacy of starting it as soon as possible to be the first to market was valuable, he recognized his deficiencies in his skill set and ultimately decided to continue school and begin his business after his degree was completed. Having this insight as to his work passion and how to execute it was invaluable to Stan as he went through all his course work with the goal of starting his own business when he graduated.
