As an entrepreneur, Vionic founder and CEO Kosta Gara understands the hard work and commitment that must be maintained in order to run a successful business. With that in mind, he wanted to provide business owners with the ability to reap the fruits of their labor, rather than give it all away when using some of the leading daily deal sites available today.
Gara sought out others who shared his vision of giving back and formed a team of dedicated experts to help him produce a solution catered toward business owners — Vionic.
