1MC SCV: Tamer Abdel Founder and CEO of Stori

I first met Dave Stephan of Stori a few years ago at an AdPros LA event, and he was working on a social shopping app for Instagram. A couple of years later, I saw him again, and the focus had shifted to photo activations at events. This aligns so well with my past experience helping Fortune 500 brands with lead generation at events, I got so excited! As you’ll see in this video, Tamer Abdel and his team have listened to market feedback, taken 1,000,000 selfies at events, and have designed a user-friendly system to help brands engage event attendees and turn them into brand ambassadors on social media. It is well designed, fun, interactive, and amazing for activating brand advocates!

I’m so proud that these guys kept grinding here in Santa Clarita until they found product market fit.

In fact, I was so excited that Stori was presenting today, I had to watch all the way from my vacation in Mexico! This is a great story, or should I say STORI to watch! – Tania
