Founding Team

We’re Rob and Evan – both in our late 20’s.  We met while completing our MBA’s at Babson College, and even managed to live together for two years without killing each other (…yet)

Rob has an undergrad in business, and has sold $6 Million of ice cream in his past life as a franchisee – he used to own 7 ice cream stores, and experienced the frustrations of retail hiring firsthand.

Evan’s got a background in product management and sales engineering for companies like MotorTrend.com, and earned his degree in computer science from Wesleyan University.  He gets up at crazy hours of the morning as a dedicated November Project athlete, and is an experienced marathon runner.
