About almost 20 years in corporate America at as an engineer, venture capitalist, product manager and marketer, Suja decided to start a local business marketing company that delivered performance advertising to small businesses.
Suja has analyzed millions of small business advertising campaigns on the Bing-Yahoo network and at Whitepages and saw how much opportunity there was to optimize advertising. Small businesses pay substantially higher rates for advertising because they don't have the resources that big companies have.
Growth Monkey helps local businesses grow their businesses directly with consumers without relying on marketplaces such as Classpass, Groupon, Thumbtack or countless others.
Suja has a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Washington and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.
