THYL CEO Roundtable with Curt Stephens at BoxUp
May 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Take a trip to BoxUp and visit with their co-founder and CEO Curt Stephens. BoxUp is a high- quality, custom-printed box company that prides itself at empowering new level of affordability to small and mid-size businesses. Curt saw an opportunity in the market and established this business less that 5 years ago.
This lunch event will be an open conversation about BoxUp and entrepreneurship evolving in a changing market. It will then end with a tour of the facility. This event will last over an hour (max 1.5 hours), but attendees are available to stay as long as their schedule permits and may skip the tour if needed.
Lunch is provided by BoxUp and there is no dress code required for facility tour.
From a Tribune Start article about BoxUp:
BoxUp uses digital technology, eliminating the need for printing plates, and lets customers design their own packaging online. The business has about 700 active customers.
“The advent of the internet and the ability for small businesses to reach customers all over the world has created an explosion of ‘solopreneurs,’ one-man bands making a product and selling it online,” Stephens said.
“They’re proud of what they make, they understand the power of brand and they want the customer receiving their product to be a high-end quality experience,” he said. “It gives you some legitimacy when the box you hand someone with your product in it has your name on it.”
