**RESCHEDULED for a later date in Spring 2020** Registration will open when the date is set.
Join us to hear the incredible story of how Ibrahim Mesbah and Andreas Ronneseth met at ASU during their undergraduate and graduate studies in computer science, worked at Paypal together, and then united to create RevolutionParts Inc, an eCommerce platform streamlining the process of selling auto parts online. This event will be hosted at the RevolutionParts Inc headquarters on Wednesday, March 25th. (Just a few miles from the ASU campus and right off the light rail). We will kick the event off with dinner, drinks, and networking at 6 pm followed by a lively fireside chat with the two founders at 7 pm.
Since founding RevolutionParts Inc in 2014, Mesbah and Ronneseth have achieved 25% year over year growth and an 11 million dollar a year run rate without any fundraising. They have created strategic partnerships with companies like Doordash and are incredibly skilled at falling in love with problems. How did two software engineers translate hands on keyboard into success?
RevolutionParts Inc was founded with a simple goal: using their decades of experience to revolutionize the automotive parts industry, providing a better way for customers to sell parts online. The automotive industry is primed for a revolution and the team at RevolutionParts Inc is leading that call.
