Business description: GoTown was created by Chris Hutchins and Michael Morris, both San Francisco Bay Area natives who share a passion and appreciation for the incredible place in which they live. Chris, a previous small business retail store owner and former marketing executive, decided to team up with Michael, a former engineering director and developer from Apple and Adobe, to create a better way for our small towns and their merchants to connect with their local communities. Chris and Michael realized that the mobile phone was quickly becoming the device of choice for consumers to receive information and deals from their favorite local businesses. After months of research and development, the first town, Los Gatos, CA, was launched in May of this year. Stay tuned as new towns go live on the GoTown platform this summer! Connecting You to Your Community! Most people love where they live, in fact, the local town in which we live is where the majority of our time is spent. That’s why GoTown is so powerful. It’s a free service to residents that connects them to their community: Quick access to everything that’s happening in your town like restaurant/shop info, events, public services and the ability to receive incredible, one-of-a-kind deals directly to your mobile phone. Having your town at your fingertips creates a tighter community and helps support your local, family-run businesses.
