Corey Capasso just cannot seem to keep still judging by the number of companies he has established and the number of awards that have come his way. His latest venture – Nomi, which he co-founded in September 2012 and leads as president now – is his most successful so far.
Nomi provides major retailers with effective, efficient and responsive access to web analytics as their online counterparts. In 2013, it secured $13 million in funding from several investors including First Round Capital, Greycroft Partners, and Accel Partners. Its clients are giants in their industries, such as Dallas Cowboys, Barney’s and Giant Eagle.
