NWA Venture Mashup
Thursday, March 22, 2018
The Venture MashUp is a bi-monthly event that brings everyone from our entrepreneurial community together for local beer, and an opportunity to learn from inspiring entrepreneurs. This month our guest is Entrepreneur and founder of Bucket Technology, Francis Hwang. The event is free, but spots are limited so sign up today!
Francis has over a decade of experience in creating, launching, and managing successful businesses. Having always gravitated towards enterprises and ideas that question and disrupt the status quo, it was a natural step for Francis to start Bucket Technologies. Coming up with the concept for Bucket over 10 years ago, Francis finally set aside other ventures to focus and commit to his mission of eliminating coins and alleviating the environmental and governmental stresses from the productions, distribution, and management of coin currency.
Francis recently moved to Bentonville, Arkansas and when he isn't working or traveling for Bucket you will find him off-roading with his wife Kristine in the Ozarks.
What is Bucket?
Bucket Technologies is a platform that digitizes coin change when cash is used at retail locations. Instead of receiving physical coins back and letting them languish in your car or in a coin jar, the coins will be digitally deposited into your secure Bucket account. Bucket simultaneously increases coin currency value and reduces costs, while alleviating the stresses associated with the production, distribution, and handling of physical coins for consumers and retailers alike. By mobilizing the value of coins, Bucket is empowering individual consumers and re-injecting idle cash into the global economy. As an individual you have a new way to save money. Now, you can use your change instead of losing your change.
The MashUp is hosted at Bike Rack Brewery, and presented by Startup Junkie, a team of passionate people working every day to help entrepreneurs win and communities thrive
