Looking for insights from successful founders? Need some inspiration to get started on your own project?
Join us on April 27 for our next Startup Story Social, a free event highlighting a Silicon Prairie startup champion every month. This event is a great way for startup scene newbies and beginners to meet current startup founders, investors and employees.
This month we’re featuring Ken Maxwell, Andy Liakos and Joe Petsick, the founders of Proxibid, an online auctioneering site and marketplace for highly valued items.
Founded in 2001, Petsick said that Proxibid grew out of recognizing an opportunity to disrupt a marketplace that had really gone unchanged for thousands of years.
Since then, Proxibid has grown into the world’s largest real auction marketplace. The company has over 4,000 unique auctioneers, asset owners and consignors with buyers from 190 countries, with over 13,000 new buyer accounts being created every month.
The Startup Story Social will also include the premiere of the latest episode of the SPN Startup Story Video Series.
Free beer and wine will be provided at the event to those of legal age.
