Lunch & Learn: Intro to e-Social Trading
GivU is based on the premise that we all love shopping, but the truth is nobody likes to spend money. The inspiration for GivU was born out of a frustration with traditional shopping options and the limits of the dollar as a medium of exchange, especially for Millennial’s who lack disposable income. As a response to this frustration GivU was created to offer a unique shopping experience where you don’t need money to buy the stuff you want!
At GivU we are pioneering a new way of shopping known as e-social trading that delivers a smarter and more collaborative shopping experience. To find out more, come out to our Pop-up Lunch & Learn where we will be providing Tamales and a unique opportunity for you to experience GivU!
Besides receiving some delicious tamales, the first 10 to make a transaction on our platform will receive some goodies!
