Abebooks Co-Founders Rick and Vivian Pura Join Connect2Classes™ As Advisors
“Abebooks is a worldwide leader in selling rare and hard to find books, but most important to us, Rick and Vivian were pioneers in building a scalable, world class marketplace”
"Abebooks was built to solve the challenges of a fragmented marketplace just as C2C is facing today," said Rick, adding "We built it from the ground up, technically, logistically, organizationally to solve those problems, and we are thrilled to help C2C do just that in the learning marketplace today, essentially by doing it again, knowing what we know now. As people who love to take classes, we are excited to be working with an organization who is making it easier to see the variety of classes available in a local area along with the specifics such as price, schedule and even reviews.”
"Booksellers had limited means to make their unique inventories available to people looking for rare books; creating the perfect opportunity for us,"said Vivian Pura. “Abebooks connected the booksellers and buyers in a way that was beneficial to all. Connect2Classes is in a very similar place with providers being a diverse collection of schools, businesses, non-profits churches, rec centers and individuals. We see this as a huge opportunity for Connect2Classes and are very pleased to join the Connect2Classes advisory board.”
