How to Nail Your Value Proposition, with Kevin Tan of Snackpass
It all started with a crush. Yale student Kevin Tan wanted to gift his crush a smoothie, which led him to the idea for Snackpass: a food app that saves its users time, money, and most importantly, is social. Since launching in 2017, Snackpass reached over 80 percent penetration on Yale's campus and now has plans to scale to 100 campuses in the next two years. Kevin shares why Snackpass is focused on pick-up over delivery, how the company is transitioning from building a product to building a team, and why the secret to capturing any customer is authenticity.
