Ferndale, MI – Livio Radio, a Michigan-based manufacturer and developer of devices that connect with any automobile to play Internet radio stations such as Pandora and NPR, is now offering their Carmen Car Audio Player at an exclusive 55% off through Buy Young, an online marketplace created by OUR TIME.
The national non-profit organization founded to stand up for Americans under 30, OUR TIME, and 150 of America’s top young CEOs launched the Buy Young initiative last month with a summit in Washington, D.C. at the White House, Capitol Hill and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The goal of the initiative is to encourage Americans to support companies and organizations founded by entrepreneurs under 30 and offer exclusive discounts on products and services to OUR TIME’s fast-growing membership of more than 300,000.
Livio Radio joins hundreds of young companies to reinforce the fact that young Americans are major contributors to the success of the U.S. economy and key drivers of job creation. So far, the participating companies alone have created over 7,000 jobs altogether.
Bolstered by a $10,000 loan from his parents and driven by a passion for music, Jake Sigal founded Livio Radio in 2008 in the guest bedroom of his home in Ferndale, Mich. Two years later, Sigal has established himself not only as Livio’s CEO but as a visionary and an innovator in the world of consumer electronics. More than 20 successful products available on the market by 2010 bore his proverbial, creative signature. Livio Radio is proud of their products, and their customers love them. Sigal says, “As a young American, born in ‘81, getting involved in Buy Young is a perfect fit for our Livio brand and crew.”
The Carmen Car Audio Player is the ultimate FM transmitter with AUX capabilities for music lovers looking to bring more music and Internet radio into the car, without monthly fees. The Carmen records content from over 45,000 AM, FM and Internet-only stations from around the world.
There are not enough jobs in the government or corporate America, so OUR TIME encourages its members to make their own by aggregating hundreds of companies founded by young Americans into an online marketplace. These companies offer at least a 30% discount on their products and services for four weeks as an incentive for Americans to “Buy Young.” Through various online, social media, and televised marketing campaigns, OUR TIME helps drive these businesses traffic and volume to continue to grow them. OUR TIME members are encouraged to apply for jobs with their vendors, who are encouraged to make job openings available to OUR TIME’s network as their businesses expand.
Sigal describes his personal stories to inspire and educate others about entrepreneurship on Livio Radio’s profile page, here.
“I strongly believe that encouraging American businesses to innovate here, grow here, and stay here is crucial to job creation and to the future of our economic competitiveness. That’s why I’m a proud supporter of Democrats’ Make It In America agenda, and why I applaud OUR TIME’s work to promote young entrepreneurs through its Buy Young initiative.” – Minority Whip Steny Hoyer
