Troy’s zferral is Metro Detroit, international, and virtual-based, all at the same time. The North Woodward Tech Incubator-housed start-up has founders and programmers here and in Poland who constantly work over Skype to build their new business.
“We’re definitely growing,” says Jeff Epstein, co-founder of zferral. “I expect to add some staff here in Michigan soon.”
zferral allows entrepreneurs to scale their business by crowd-sourcing sales and marketing. The technology allows them to create and manage their custom affiliate and referral programs from a single dashboard. The company launched earlier this summer and has attracted close to 300 customers.
Epstein started working on another online advertising project at the North Woodward Tech Incubator earlier this year. That venture went in one direction, and he went in another.
“I decided to focus on this full-time and it has really paid off,” Epstein says.
