‘corePHP’ Gives Back to Area Entrepreneur Students

Young Entrepreneurs Academy students

Last week, ‘corePHP’ welcomed several area middle school students as a part of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy curriculum. Co-owners Steven and Michael Pignataro discussed e-commerce with the attendees, particularly the company’s revolutionary e-commerce platform paGO Commerce.

The twins walked the four students through the e-commerce sales process, allowing them to see firsthand what it takes to establish a successful online store. They referenced the thousands of paGO deployed sites to show the variations of stores established. As the developers of paGO Commerce, Steven and Michael took the students through the proper steps for selling online with paGO and establishing an online marketing strategy. Additionally, the participants received insights on developing a website. In the end, it was a great opportunity for both Steven and Michael to encourage each of their futures and let them know opportunities are endless.
