#111: Chill __ This week, we chat with Andrew Forman, CEO & Co-Founder @ Givz!
Givz is an eCommerce marketing platform that helps Shopify merchants use donation incentives vs. discounts, grows sales, creates social impact and reduces discount dependency. Givz allows merchants to convert discounts into donations, adding a tangible value of purpose and meaning to every sale, Givz is more cost-effective than discount campaigns; consumers can support organizations and causes close to their heart, while charities receive the funding they would otherwise not get.
Prior to Givz, Andrew spent six years in finance (mergers and acquisitions investment banking), was the treasurer of a nonprofit with the mission of enhancing literacy in Africa and loved playing any sport/game available. Andrew received his MBA from Harvard Business School and his BA in mathematics and economics from Hamilton College.
Overdose. Americas, Sebastian Brown Glad, speaks with Andrew to discuss online discounts, long-term profitability for businesses and how brands are embracing the move towards social good.
