Headquartered in Philadelphia, Grovara is the first B2B marketplace for natural and organic brands. Its technology platform connects U.S. healthy consumer brands with international retailers, helping companies streamline the entire process and preparing them for the global marketplace in just 60 days. Groverman’s other current businesses include Product Search Live, an innovative shopping experience launching this year; BFY Media, a media network focusing on global wellness health and food; Stretch Gallery, a virtual and physical art gallery in Miami; and the R.E.L.I.E.F. Foundation, a nonprofit helping those affected by natural disasters.

“I love taking an idea and turning it into a business, and I’m going to show students how to do that,” said Groverman. “Working with the students is a creative landscape that is ripe for innovation. It’s an adventure and I’m incredibly optimistic about the ROI for everyone involved.”

Groverman credits his law degree and Villanova Law faculty for allowing him to pursue and jumpstart his entrepreneurial passion while still a student.
