Spencer Williams, founder of West Paw, was just 23 years old when he began manufacturing pet toys in Bozeman, Montana. The newly-minted entrepreneur reveled in the chance to try out new, untested strategies, which in turn fueled his entrepreneurial drive. “That’s what gets me excited about business,” Williams says.
In the 22 years since, Williams has stuck by another founding motivation for getting into business: positively impacting his community by hiring employees locally and making a difference in their lives.
