CEO – Ross Weisman
Ross Weisman a native of Boca Raton, Florida showed an aptitude from a young age for business whether it was coming up with business ideas or investing in stocks. Having a passion for the stock market, Ross went on to receive a degree in finance from the school of business at Florida Atlantic University. In his junior year at FAU, Ross came up with the idea of GWICK as a response to receiving generic text messages on his birthday just saying “Happy Birthday”. Ross felt that the birthday experience had become impersonal. Knowing that he could not change the way people use technology today, Ross wanted to create a gifting platform that would allow people to stay connected and celebrate their most important occasions with others in a meaningful way. “And that’s how GWICK was started”.
