The 2016 Forbes 30 Under 30 list included Enplug CEO and Co-Founder Nanxi Liu. The coveted list is described as “America’s most important young entrepreneurs, creative leaders, and brightest stars.”

As Enplug’s CEO, I was truly humbled and honored to be selected onto the list. The people who really deserve this recognition are my teammates. They are the ones making Enplug succeed because they answer every customers’ questions, write every line of our software’s code, design every pixel of our UI, bring in every dollar of $ales, and find genius solutions to every obstacle we’ve faced.

Our team turned digital signage from an archaic solution in an ostracized industry to the must-have tech for all modern, tech savvy businesses. Traditional digital signage has clunky designs and difficult to use interfaces. By switching to our software, companies were able to turn their existing displays into intuitive and exciting communication tools. (Try one for your office.)
