Tell us more about your role in Hub Bound.
As a founder, I’ve worn all hats at Hub Bound. Some include User Experience & Interface designer, IT Architect, eCommerce Developer and run marketing, sales, partnerships, finance (budgeting, payroll, projections, etc.), etc.
What is the most difficult part of your job? But the most rewarding one?
A company’s personnel are its most important asset which makes finding great talent the most difficult part of my job. On the other hand, the most rewarding part of my job is seeing customers excited about Hub Bound and receiving their feedback on how useful and valuable the product is to them.
Is there anything that you would change about your professional path?
Although I’ve had positions that may not seem to match my current profession, there’s always something to learn from each experience that can be applied to current and future roles. With that said, there’s nothing I would change about my professional path.
What’s your key strategy for the development of your company?
My customers play the largest role in telling me where to take Hub Bound. For every company, consumers decide which features and products to build and how. My strategy is to listen to my customers and build genuine and meaningful relationships with them and my partners.
On a larger scale, Hub Bound’s vision is to be a hub for every B2C (Business to Consumer) industry globally.
What do you think about the next period of time, keeping in mind the pandemic and the new business climate? How will your industry be affected?
Hub Bound is focused on ensuring grocers are positioned competitively for today’s market and sustainably for the future. Hub Bound was born during the pandemic due to customers’ shift in shopping behaviors. The B2C grocery industry is being taken over by online ordering with same day delivery, which is why many virtual (warehouse) delivery-only stores are on the rise and succeeding with many brick and mortar stores receiving most of their sales online. eCommerce is very competitive which is why Hub Bound’s objective is to get retailers on as many eCommerce channels as possible to increase their awareness, accessibility, and sales without increasing their digital maintenance load.
