Meet Eugene Johnson, a Tech Entrepreneur impacting the World

As the world evolves, the tech space is also evolving at a faster rate, and more multi-functional devices are making our life easier, such as smartphones. But it is impossible to talk about the changes in the tech field and how they have affected society without mentioning Eugene Johnson. Eugene is an investor and tech entrepreneur who has spearheaded various projects for the last 15 years. He is now leveraging this experience to redefine online food ordering services as he empowers other young innovators.

Eugene is the founder and CEO of Revi, a technology solution for restaurants that is changing the food ordering process for online consumers. The app uses an in-store digital and mobile ordering system to streamline the ordering process, gather analytics, and reconnect with users post-purchase. This allows for a more personalized and seamless experience in the hospitality industry as it takes the field to the next level.

Eugene’s goal is to build an extensive network of millions of users who are incentivized to try new stores within the Revi ecosystem. With this, Eugene can help restaurant owners stay connected to their customers, connect the public to new eateries, and provide consumers with more detailed purchasing suggestions.

As the founder of several startups, Eugene Johnson is also using this opportunity to support and encourage young entrepreneurs. He has shared his journey to success and the lessons he has learned to help tech professionals avoid some common pitfalls.

Getting started in any field is no simple task. But it doesn’t mean that it is unattainable. Eugene notes that your success depends on how far you are willing to go and how well you will handle the hurdles.

When Eugene Johnson started his first business, a sales company, he was 18 years old. At the time, Eugene didn’t have any business experience, and it was made worse because he had problems with his finances. Eugene had just moved from New York to California, and the rent was higher compared to his neighborhood.

But the move was an important step in his journey as California had more opportunities, and while the first few years were rough, Eugene didn’t take a step back. He continued pushing, learning from others in the industry, and working on his brand, which helped him grow his company.

His experience working in different fields helped him in his journey and even the creation of his app Revi. After selling his sales organization, Eugene established another venture where he trained corporations and entrepreneurs on leadership development, sales, and organizational scaling. He also bought and sold stocks and crypto and worked at Meraki for five years before the company was sold.

During his time in Meraki, Eugene learned more about the tech space and even business leadership, growing the company from 60-70 employees to over 3,000. He says that working at Meraki played a huge part in starting Revi.

Eugene noted a gap in the hospitality sector, specifically food ordering services, and he wanted to develop a system that would fit current market needs. He believed in his idea and what he wanted to achieve, and in 2018, Eugene launched Revi. Today Revi is a top food ordering company changing the hospitality industry and the world.
