In late 2013, after missing a semi-annual sample sale at his favorite store, Cory realized just how cumbersome skimming through old tweets & emails for retail deals was. Even worse, a lot of smaller clothing stores simply tape a "20% off" sign to their window and hope for the best. He realized it was a painfully fragmented process while Bill noticed how location & contextual data could help solve this. So they dug deeper, analyzed what's been done already, built a beta, and eventually shipped ShopDrop.
Cory & Bill compliment each other in every sense of the word. Cory is an experienced product manager with an eye for design while Bill has 15+ years developing enterprise & consumer software. Months prior to building ShopDrop, the two met due to their common interest in building location-based applications. They would chat for hours about tech trends and possible things they could build, while updating each other on their own personal projects at the time.
