Andrew Gazdecki’s goal is to develop and create solutions that support small and medium size businesses. He is the founder and CEO of Bizness Apps, a do-it-yourself mobile app and mobile website platform for small businesses, and Bizness CRM, a CRM tool designed to make selling to small businesses easy.
A graduate from CSU Chico, Gazdecki has been an entrepreneur for as long as he can remember. At the age of 10, he was selling baseball cards to neighborhood friends, and at the age 15, Andrew created his first for-profit website. In 2009, Andrew founded and bootstrapped Bizness Apps into a global enterprise all while he was a senior in college. Since then, he has gone on to help more than 100,000 small businesses engage with their customers on mobile devices.
Today, Gazdecki is the authority on mobile marketing for small and medium sized businesses. He has been featured in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Entrepreneur Magazine, as well as prominent industry blogs such as Mashable, TechCrunch and VentureBeat. A firm believer in education, Gazdecki offers frequent presentations and donations to his alma mater, and contributes to the school’s Entrepreneurship Week, which gives students the tools and resources to bring their businesses to fruition.
