Get to know the startups and entrepreneurs changing the Tennessee landscape — designing innovative solutions, creating jobs, and building communities. This week, we chatted with StoragePug’s Tommy Nguyen.
Give us your elevator pitch:
StoragePug helps self-storage owners and operators grow their business and simplify operations. We make it easy to find space, rent space, and manage your account in one easy location.
Briefly, what inspired you to start your company?
Matt, our CEO, saw an opportunity to boost his dad’s self-storage business and simplify operations. Plus, after experiencing toxic work environments, we wanted to create a space for people to find freedom in their lives and maximize their potential.
What’s your secret sauce?
We’re fun, fast, and familiar. Plus, all three cofounders are software developers. That helps!
If your company had a theme song, what would it be?
