Episode 137 – Designed to be Epic with Stephen “Sulli” Sullivan of Stio

In this week’s episode of the Jackson Hole Connection, Stephan chats with Stephen “Sulli” Sullivan. Sulli is the Founder/CEO of the outdoor apparel company Stio. Stio’s apparel is designed from the ground up to help inspire a connection to the outdoors, promote sustainability, versatility and durability. You’d be hard-pressed to walk down the street in Jackson and not see Stio’s whitebark pine cone. 

In this episode, Sulli talks about how he uprooted his life in the corporate world to live the mountain life. He shares the rise and fall of his first company Cloudveil and how this venture was more valuable than an MBA. Sulli dives into what it takes to build a brand and the science and analytics behind the direct-to-consumer market. Stephan and Sulli also discuss sustainability and the importance of ethical business practices.
