Below is our recent interview with Vinny Galiano, President of The Galiano Group:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to Minion Made?
A: Minion Made is an award winning web development agency based in New York. Our team develops websites, specifically ecommerce websites for clients such as The NFL, The XFL & Reebok, as well as many startup companies looking to open up their sales and products online to customers worldwide.
Q: You’ve recently been named a top 15 web development & design agency worldwide by Yahoo & Yahoo Finance; could you tell us something more?
A: It was quite an honor. We have been doing this for quite some time, helping and building businesses from behind the scenes. So to be presented with recognition of any kind is always a treat. Our team puts a lot of dedicated effort into our clients and their businesses, so it is always humbling when somebody takes notice.
Q: Can you give us insights into your services?
A: Minion Made focuses on Shopify & Shopify Plus web developments. We create and maintain pixel perfect websites for our clients. We believe in coming up with original ideas and turning them into digital work that is both innovative and interactive. We are a team of professional developers inspired by creativity and driven by client success. Minion Made has developed websites for clients big and small in every industry. Our versatility is well tested and our ingenuity is well proven.
Q: What makes you stand out from your competition?
A: We are relatable. We’re capable of connecting with our clients on a personal level. I myself am an entrepreneur, starting a clothing company at the ripe old age of 17, I was able to get a raw sense of doing business online, which has given me a unique perspective into our clients needs and wants, and with our collective experiences, we are capable of capturing and delivering, converting and high performance web presences for our clients, allowing them to focus on other sectors within their business.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Well, we plan to continue to build businesses. With a recent acquisition of a marketing firm, we have brought marketing in house as well, which provides a full suite solution for clients and companies looking to not only start but now grow their web presence. As highly touted Shopify & Shopify Plus Experts, we intend to continue to grow our technological partnerships to provide our clients with deeper services, leveraging the very best technologies.
Q: What is The Galiano Group?
A: The Galiano Group is my investment arm. Taking pride in building businesses, and providing strategic investments to companies, I have had the opportunity to work with incredible companies and individuals. I have had the opportunity to take part in investment rounds with Uber, Airbnb, Palantir, as well as provide venture capitalist investments with much smaller startup companies.
Q: How do Minion Made & The Galiano Group fit into your portfolio together?
A: Minion Made & The Galiano Group both have similar interests. The goal for any company we work with or invest in is to provide direction or development services geared towards strategically starting or growing businesses in many industries. With Minion Made’s portfolio of work across a wide array of industries, we have had the pleasure and opportunity to work with these companies and generate deep insights which allows us to better position our clients for success. The same applies for The Galiano Group.
