My post apocalyptic survival skill is...
persistence and survival
My biggest challenge...
As a bootstrapped company funding becomes a necessity. Even though the idea is strong and so is the passion of the team. Our biggest challenge is to raise funds. We have just started the process and need help understanding the shortest and most efficient way to do this.
I want to invest in...
GiftVolo because I believe GiftVolo has the potential to have significant social impact in terms of generating 1 Million jobs.
I can be most helpful at...
I am a good networker and regularly make connections between people.
I think we can fix America by...
I believe in the power of local communities. With GiftVolo our mission is to create thriving local communities. Gifting, as you know is, predominantly biased in favor of big brand merchants, big box stores and big e-tailers. Small businesses are not able to capture their fair share of this market because of their limited reach and visibility. With GiftVolo we want to provide unparalleled read to local merchants so that anyone living anywhere in the US (eventually any where in the world) can see the menu of their services and gift their services and niche products in 3 clicks.
My most influential mentor is...
I am currently investing in my own venture - GiftVolo. My motivation is 1 million jobs as we create thriving local communities.
