Supporting community important to EnterCircle speaker, sponsor


EnterCircle 2023 is a three-day business summit that highlights inspirational speakers that align with the theme “Thrive with Purpose.” This year, the summit welcomes speaker Nick Crouch, co-CEO of DYNE Hospitality Group, and sponsor Hyundai of St. Augustine. 

Crouch is a Missouri native who came to Northeast Florida in search of business opportunities. But when he set foot in St. Augustine, he fell in love with the area and decided to call this little corner of Florida his home. Crouch’s family moved from World Golf Village, then Palencia, before settling in the tight-knit community of Nocatee. 

“We believe that giving back to the communities where we own and operate businesses, especially schools, churches, athletics and charities, is extremely important, and we feel it is our duty to support the community as a thank you and sign of gratitude for the people in the community supporting our business,” Crouch said. 

Crouch hopes to continue his mission to inspire youth by speaking at EnterCircle Summit 2023.

“I think that hopefully my story is a story of inspiration, hard work, grit, gratitude and consistency,” Crouch said. 

Attendees will gain insight from industry and community leaders on how finding purpose in what you do can lead you to thrive.

“I believe that a great company is centered around a precise mission, strong core values that drive all actions and a first-class company culture … We believe everyone has a purpose and a ‘seat’ and it's our job to identify that and set each individual up for success. My constant focus from sunup to sundown is how I can create new opportunities for our team,” Crouch said.

Andrew DiFeo, managing partner at Hyundai of St. Augustine, is also eager to make an impact on the youth at EnterCircle.

Hyundai of St. Augustine returns for the second year in a row as a sponsor for EnterCircle 2023. DiFeo believes that the youth are the future of innovation in this community. 

"Supporting our local community is a core value of Hyundai of St. Augustine,” DiFeo said. “We are honored to support EnterCircle for the second year in a row. While the quality of the content and networking opportunities are first-class, it is the entrepreneurial spirit and innovative ideas from our community's youth that are most inspiring. This year's theme of 'Thrive with Purpose' is very relevant in our ever-changing world with so many opportunities for meaningful change at the local and global level.”

The youth symposium on Nov. 16 also features a pitch competition by high school students. This day couldn't be possible without the continued support of leaders like Nick Crouch and Andrew DiFeo.
