Tanga is a Finalist for ASU’s Spirit of Enterprise Award for Innovation

CHANDLER, AZ, November 29, 2016 – Tanga, Chandler-based online marketplace for deal seekers, has been selected as one of two finalists for Arizona State University’s 20th annual Spirit of the Enterprise Award for Innovation in Entrepreneurship. The annual award ceremony was hosted by ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business to recognize local business for their excellence in all categories of innovation.

Tanga was selected as one of two finalists from hundreds of valley businesses and community leaders. This is one of the highest honors Arizona has to offer local businesses and Tanga was privileged to be a part.

For the last decade, Jeremy Young, founder and CEO of Tanga, has been advancing the innovation tide that today makes Arizona the latest hotbed for tech startups. At the core of Tanga’s approach to shopping for deals is a unique vision for personalization. It has created a proprietary engine that makes helps match products and deals to each customer based on their tastes and interests.

Jeremy Young says the company’s secret sauce isn’t solely based on technology. It is the people behind it, business integrity, and the innovative company culture that sets the Chandler company apart as a daily deals leader.

“One Tanga’s core values is ‘Move fast and accept uncertainty’ so innovation is as natural for us here as finding best deals on the web for our customers,” says Jeremy Young. “Every employee has an opportunity to innovate, and we’ve had great examples of organic innovation from people at all levels that define how we operate today.”

In 2006, Jeremy Young was left with inventory to move from a failed business venture. Being the innovator he is, he launched Tanga.com, selling one deeply discounted item every night until he liquidated his leftover stock. Tanga has been growing ever since, as millions of customers have been turning to the site again and again for more discounted goodness.
