Restaurants love Triangle startup Stealz, but will customers?

The founders of social media engagement app Stealz came together to start a nonprofit organization to help school systems raise more money. In the process, they met owners of restaurants, bars and venues and learned of a key problem in marketing and growing their businesses. They didn't have the time, or the content, to take advantage of social media. Stealz helps. But is Stealz a steal for users? ExitEvent Editor Laura Baverman takes an inside look at the company, its growth and its challenges.
