3 YEC Member Companies Form Important Outside Partnerships

Recently, a few YEC Members have created new partnerships with some of the leading companies in their industries. Here are three to congratulate right now.

In May, Sandboxx -- founded by YEC member Sam Meek -- launched an exclusive partnership with Boatbound, the nation's fastest growing peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace, to celebrate Veterans over Memorial Day. The partnership offered a complimentary day of boating for Sandboxx members / veterans in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Washington D.C. With nearly 23 million veterans living in the United States, it was a great opportunity to thank the men and women who have served our country and to reconnect them with their peers aboard a beautiful boat. Sandboxx CEO, Founder and Marine Corps Veteran Sam Meek is passionate about honoring our military men and women and could not think of a better partner than Boatbound to make it happen.

2.  American Fueling Systems: A national leader in the alternative fueling industry.

Founded by YEC member Rahim Charania, American Fueling Systems (AFS) provides alternative fuel opportunities to help businesses save money, go green and "buy American" by using energy that is cheaper, cleaner for our environment and sourced right here in the U.S. This past March, American Fueling Systems officially partnered with GAIN Clean Fuel, which now enables AFS to leverage GAIN Clean Fuel's CNG stations for use with its partner carriers. In return, GAIN will benefit from AFS's presence as a regionally trusted leader in the alternative fuel market, providing organizations with energy independence and financial stability.

“We’re excited about the strategic alliance this partnership creates for both of us,” said Charania. “It’s been a great experience and we’re looking forward to future development opportunities with GAIN."

Ufford is confident this partnership will combine complementary data and technology to deliver market-leading fraud prevention and AML/KYC identity verification solutions.
