Startup Grind – Jose Li (71lbs) 25% off w/ RFM25

November 11, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Jose Li is an ambassador to South Florida’s Startup Community and the Founder of 71lbs.com, a “set-and-forget” SaaS solution that automatically provides fast and free FedEx & UPS shipping refunds addressing the billions of dollars that are left unclaimed every year.
Come hear how 71lbs –

  • Grew from zero to a few thousand customers by trying and testing various customer acquisition tactics and metrics
  • Built a seasoned Board of Directors and experienced Board of Advisors
  • Experienced the long and difficult journey from bootstrapping to fundraising
  • Was offered the first Miami Innovation Fund term sheet (and why he didn’t take it)
  • Jose’s thoughts on next chapters in growth and funding

In addition to getting accepted to TechStars Chicago, 71lbs has raised capital from partners including –

  • New World Ventures
  • Tamiami Angels
  • OCA Ventures
  • Idea Fund Partners

Jose is no stranger to the press –

Before starting 71lbs, Jose spent 15+ years on both sides of the shipping table: managing shipping/logistics for Jamba Juice, and running FedEx’s Retail & eCommerce practice. His experience also entails Alibaba.com, Exxon Mobil, Goldman Sachs and he has an MBA from Carnegie Mellon.
