GoSoapBox has been used at many events in Chicago, including Technori and beyond. John Pytel is co-founder of GoSoapBox, and we caught up with John at TechWeek.
John recently graduated from Michigan State University with a BA in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. After a stint at the Nielsen Company, he become co-founder of GoSoapBox and is actively involved in all things startup in Chicago.
John was especially passionate about making the educational experience better for shy learners when he started GoSoapBox. That's also translating well into B2B and corporate events across Chicago like Technori and TechWeek that have used GoSoapBox widely.
Since starting just over 1 year ago, GoSoapBox has garnered attention from local, regional and national attention. They won the Lean Startup Challenge Chicago in 2011, and continue to increasing customer acquisition month-by-month.
They've also received positive media coverage from greats like Mashable, the Illinois Tech Association and beyond. If you aren't already, follow @GoSoapBox on Twitter, and on Facebook right now!
