Matthew Graczyk wants to bring online coupons to mom-and-pop shops across the nation, and he’s starting with downtown Ventura.
Graczyk is the founder of Coupeez, an online service that lets companies post coupons and discounts. The site launched in October. So far, it has signed up about 100 businesses, many within walking distance of Coupeez’s headquarters at the Ventura Ventures Technology Center, the tech incubator funded by a joint venture between investors and the city of Ventura.
Graczyk said paper coupons that show up in the Sunday newspaper or the mailbox are outdated in the Internet age.
