Liang and Francisco were very active in the developer community in silicon valley, we met at several events such as the HappyDev events and we did 2 hackathons together. We've been working together for a year. Francisco handles product vision, biz dev and fundraising, and Liang handles development (back and front end) We both want to boost the migration of ecommerce towards social, and help sellers get more traffic and sales via their own networks.
Francisco has a background in eCommerce and online services and Liang has an extensive background in social features. We believe that the next wave of ecommerce growth is the integration of social and ecommerce. We believe we are the scalable solution for any retailer to publish and manage their sales online.
