We are an experienced team of beverage alcohol and technology experts who are passionate about using technology to disrupt large markets and create efficiencies for customers. We are applying this philosophy to the $100b US liquor industry to change the way consumers discover and buy wine, spirits, and beer.
Specifically, Drync builds POS-integrated "white label" apps for liquor retailers that enable their customers to search and browse inventory, scan products, access millions of reviews and products, track favorites, and purchase instantly from their phones. Retailers gain customer data, consumption insights, and have a new digital channel to promote products and communicate with customers.
Drync has been lauded by Forbes, the Today Show, Bloomberg TV, USA Today, NY Times, Mashable, TechCrunch, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, and many others.
Entrepreneur and technologist with amazing App-fu and a passion for wine. Conceptualized Drync on a “baby moon” in Tuscany while taking pictures and scraping labels to remember wines. Aha moment came - “There must be a better way!” When he got home, he built it (well, Bill built it). Best wine moment was enjoying a 1967 Cos D’Estournel with his father.
He can fly AND code!!! A certified pilot since 1991 Brad takes more than his companies sky high (probably safer than letting him code).
Wine aficionado who has worked every facet of the industry. Will geek out on wine factoids, if prompted. Will also sing karaoke, if prompted. Mother of three. Mandates Champagne consumption every Friday with her husband. Best wine moment was drinking 1988 Salon in a helicopter over Paris with Jordan Mackay, Tara Weingarten and Matt deBord.
Can make cupcakes in the likeness of any animal on the planet - Cows, Bunnies, Turkeys, Giraffes, Angry Birds, you name it.
Product manager by day and and overly competitive recreational sports participant by night. Absolutley no relation to Brad Rosen, but for some reason still refers to him as "Bro."

Never forgets faces, always forgets names.
A Frenchman with a love for wine and not CHEESE! Every Sunday you will find him on the golf course trying to putt his way to a good score and if not, either cooking up something good, watching some Formula One races or soccer! Best wine moment was spent enjoying a 1990 Ridge Monte Bello with friends and family.
Can make a mean beef wellington!
Red Sox fan who loves to build things. Sees patterns, and puts the rubber to the road. Best wine moment is that “ah ha” moment everyone has the first time they smell a wine like they’re going to drink it, then swirl it and smell again.

Drync was born in the small Tuscan town of San Casciano dei Bagni, Italy. On vacation with spouses and enjoying wine throughout the region, co-founders Brad Rosen and Jodi Goldstein began using their iPhones to capture labels of favorites. Both tech entrepreneurs, the opportunity to use the connected smartphone to demystify wine and increase buyer confidence was not lost on them.
Brad then invited co-founders Bill Kirtley and Rob Mathews, two of the best engineers Brad knew, along with user experience guru Eric Sagalyn to create the most comprehensive wine database and community in the world.
As a team, Brad, Jodi, Bill, and Rob grew Drync organically to become an enormous community of beverage enthusiasts and a huge aggregation of beverage information and consumer preference data.
