Listen to this fast paced interview with Pat Fuscoe as he shares how he has retained the company’s start-up culture with a firm of over 200 people. From All Hands Meeting to Core Values and Vision to becoming an ESOP, he has fostered a spirit of teamwork and creativity that would surprise you in any firm, much less an engineering firm. His commitment to technology and constant learning has put them at the cutting edge in the use of drones, virtual reality and Watson for providing his clients with answers to questions they didn’t even know to ask. This firm may be blurring the lines of what an Engineering company does but they are laser focused on providing customer service.

Pat’s Take-A-Ways:
1. It is better to be small and great than big and crappy!
2. Growth is about getting stronger, not bigger.
3. Celebrate what you can do rather than mourn what you can’t do.

See Jane Go is a women-driving-women ride-hail service that offers a secure alternative to existing ride-hail services (Uber & Lyft). The company is placing women in the driver seat of the ride-hail industry by providing a same-sex atmosphere and eliminating the barriers of fear and safety in working for or using a ride-hail service. See Jane Go was conceived by Savannah Jordan and her father during a "protective-father moment". Savannah wanted the option to use or drive for a ride hail company but both she and her father were very uncomfortable with it. During that conversation Savannah made a passing comment about a women driving women ride hail option and the idea of See Jane Go was born.

He helps with open communication to uncover what everyone on the team really wants out of their career and personal lives.
