The Idea

May 6, 1997

Jason Robbins has an idea to help companies capitalize on the power of promotional products.

Jason Robbins, Founder and CEO of ePromos, was working on the product supply side of the industry when he realized there was a better way to connect the products to the people who needed them most. The solution: a web-based distribution company with customer satisfaction at its core. The result: ePromos.
