Company Summary

The idea for Buybott formed the summer of 2012. Darren Marshall and Lyndsay Toll joined together through a beta program sponsored by a grant seeding young entrepreneurs at Oregon State. The working demo and continuous development has made the vision more and more of a reality. The mentorship of faculty and occasional outside professionals help guide the young enthusiasts toward developing a new online shopping experience.
