SOMERVILLE, NJ, April 25, 2019 — Giftapart’s founder and CEO, Filipe Pedroso, will be a guest speaker at the marketing class for the Master’s program at Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Foisie Business School in Worcester, Massachusetts.

“I was asked by Professor Edward Gonsalves to speak to his class about Giftapart,” said Pedroso, “I am glad to share my experiences in founding and developing the Giftapart platform, the business challenges, and our vision for the future.”

Giftapart has created a new, unique and proprietary method for creating gift registries. A person can create a gift list with one or more items, and not be focused on price because the Giftapart system breaks up the items into affordable parts for easy crowdfunding.

“We are the first gift registry where the gift receiver can prioritize the list in the order they want to get the gifts, and actually receive the gifts in that order,” added Pedroso, “That’s because gift givers don’t need to worry about the cost. They simply buy the number of parts they want. It’s easy, fast and affordable for them.”

Pedroso has filed for numerous patents in the area of gift registry, social ecommerce, gifting methods, and more. “No one in the world does gifting the way we do,” commented Pedroso.

In addition, “the platform is extremely social,” said Pedroso, “Giftapart is a leader in social ecommerce and social gifting.”

Contributors who purchase parts are invited to leave a comment and upload media. “This also sets Giftapart apart. Gift givers can leave their feelings, personal messages, share stories, and even upload pictures or video that are linked to their specific contribution,” said Kevyn Jaremko, director of software development at Giftapart, “What a wonderful way to add to your gifting, and not only help with money but also an emotional message connecting people.”

Giftapart launched its desktop version in December, and will be releasing iOS and Android versions within 30 days. Pedroso commented, “There is little doubt that we are innovating in general gifting, social ecommerce and gift registries.”
