Van Jepson is the CEO for Redwood City-based GroupPrice, which offers daily deals on local services, software and supplies that small businesses need to grow, while also cutting costs.
How does GroupPrice work? We provide a social commerce platform that enables businesses to buy together, much like how Groupon enables consumers to buy together. We do this efficiently by offering and enabling a quick and easy way to find and evaluate daily deals.
How does the website work and how many companies use it? We post the daily deals to the GroupPrice.com home page. It’s simple to use with an easy one-step purchasing process. There is a fresh and fun tone to the site and we get thousands of views per month.
