Ben is the CEO and Co-founder of Promoboxx, the leading digital marketing platform for manufacturing brands. Ben first identified the need for Promoboxx when working at his family package store, where he saw how brands supported their independent retailers with off-line promotional materials, but found that they did nothing to help them with digital promotion. Since being accepted into TechStars (Boston ’11), Promoboxx has grown to work with industry-leading brands including Chevrolet, Nissan, Trek Bicycles, New Balance, and GE Appliances, and has helped thousands of independent retailers, just like his parents’ package store, market better online. Promoboxx has raised over $11mm from investors that include Ascent Venture Partners, Grotech Ventures, Converge Venture Partners, Boston Seed, and Launch Capital. Ben is a Boston native, and when not working, enjoys skiing, hiking and just being with his family.
