Back in 2011, he launched his first business, CouponTrade. Through hard work, experience, determination, and the love, support and encouragement of his close-knit family–including entrepreneur dad Jimmy and philanthropist-extraordinaire mom Eleni– this effort led to the creation of Raise in 2013. According to their website, CouponTrade remains a standalone platform for free online coupons. Bravo George!
