Recently I sat down with Andrew Goei, founder of a group funding Start-up called Troopto. During our interview we discussed Troopto’s business model and Andrew’s unique outlook on business that has shaped his organization. This is the first of a two part blog series that will highlight Troopto and then describe my interview with Andrew.
What is Troopto you might ask? Well imagine this scenario. It is a co-worker’s birthday and the entire office has decided to celebrate the occasion by pitching in to purchase a gift-card and house an in-office celebration. The only problem is collecting the funds. It isn’t that people don’t want to contribute, rather it is people don’t have cash on them, work remotely, or are even out on vacation. So the funds don’t get collected and the aforementioned birthday bash never comes to light all because there isn’t an easier way to pool office funds together. Well Troopto, a start-up and recent graduate from Memphis’ Start Co accelerator, has the solution.
The idea behind Troopto is a group funding website specifically designed for workplace gifts and collaborative funding. This platform can also be used for various crowd sourcing functions such as pledge drives for Greek life, paying your fantasy football dues, your best friends surprise party, or whatever your group funding needs may be.
Troopto’s commitment to working tirelessly, bringing their clients the most simple and user friendly product sets them apart from products offering similar services. The site’s simple interface and unique features create a user-centric experience that anyone can use. Currently they are in their private beta phase and are looking to expose their product to HR and office managers alike.
