 What is Bogglo?

Bogglo allows students to transform their campus into a local store where they can quickly buy and sell what they need. College students are always pressed for time. They do not have the leisure to run around town searching for what they need nor can they afford to sell their lightly used items on time consuming marketplaces.

College, Students, University, NYC, New York, Consumers, undergraduate, freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, school, campus

Why did you build Bogglo? What problem are you taking on?

We are solving the safety, security, and efficiency issues that exist within online local buying and selling platforms. Our triple filter keeps students safe, while our technology streamlines the process. In addition, the locality of the transactions allows the process to occur in a timely manner. We provide a more secure platform for student through automated payments.

Tell us about your founding team and their backgrounds.

Andres Cohen is the Founder of Bogglo. After experiencing difficulties buying and selling while in college, Andres became motivated to solve that problem. He gathered a strong team of people who were equally motivated to resolve this issue. His background in entrepreneurship and marketing was complemented with skilled and experienced developers and a talented designer. Together they form a strong base with which to build Bogglo.
