Fueled by his passion for motorsports, cars, and technology, Shopmonkey was founded in 2016 by Ashot Iskandarian. Having worked at a number of software companies in Silicon Valley, he applied his product management expertise to begin building Shopmonkey. In 2017, Ashot and his wife took a leap of faith by quitting his job to focus on Shopmonkey to help empower and enable auto shops.
In 2016, Maintenance for Moms was birthed out of Shopmonkey Inc. The founder and his wife, Ashot and Annie Iskandarian, felt deeply compelled to integrate their faith in Jesus Christ and to express God’s love for single mothers and their children. Both Ashot and Annie have deeply personal connections to single mothers.
The Iskandarians are committed to giving a portion of Shopmonkey profits and raising money to help single moms pay for their vehicle repairs. Shopmonkey and Maintenance for Moms partner together to love and serve this deserving group of women.
