Jeremy Parker – Co-Founder and CEO at Swag.com
If you are an entrepreneur, the founder, you may not like to sell,
but you have to sell. That is your job as a founder, you have
to get the first sales.
Jeremy Parker is the Founder and Chief Execuetive Officer of Swag.com, a custom eCommerce platform for purchasing quality promotional products that people will actually want to keep. Founder of UP App and one of Crain’s NY 40 Under 40 Class of 2020, Jeremy is passionate about infusing consciousness into how we consume. In 2016, Parker realized that the promotional products industry is a $40 billion industry with 30,000 players in the space but no clear winner. He found out that the industry hasn’t changed much in the last 10 years, however, the buyer has. Parker thought it would be the perfect time to build a brand that appeals to today’s buyer, and Swag.com was born. Currently, Swag.com is on Inc.com’s Top 500 at #218, having worked with thousands of companies including Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Harry’s, Starbucks, Uber, Spotify, Netflix and Tik Tok. The company did $365k in business year one, $1.1M year two, $7M in sales year three and $10M this year.
