Impact Sourcing burst onto the scene several years ago as a promising tool for economic development, job creation and to bring technology to a broader swath of the world’s societies. Over the last few years, we have seen several companies and non-profits enter this space, and to various extents provide proof of concept that rural communities in the developing world can provide sourcing services to major corporate and government clients. These firms select and train their employees, and secure work that has traditionally gone to large IT companies to manage call centers, provide online customer support, provide back office functionality and quality assurance testing, to name a few tasks. But while the concept has been proven, we have seen very few of these organizations to scale beyond their initial geographic area. This webinar will address challenges that Impact Sourcing is facing and discuss ideas on creating a scalable model – which can significantly make a social and economic impact.Read more >

In 2014, the founders of VerticalRent (www.verticalrent.com) were featured by Microsoft BizSpark for their early achievements with launching the industry leading rental property management and tenant screening software platform for property managers and landlords. In that article, Microsoft wrote: Matt Angerer is an IT professional by day and a landlord by night. At all times, he has an entrepreneur’s heart and mindset.
A lot has changed since 2014. VerticalRent has more than quadrupled in the sheer number of landlords using the platform from every corner of the United States. The one thing that has not changed is that VerticalRent remains a small operation without employees that epitomizes the concept of a Lean Startup. If you're an IT professional by day who has been toiling with the idea of launching your own "side-gig", you'll want to tune into this BrightTalk webinar to learn how Matt Angerer, Founder of VerticalRent, started with a simple idea and scaled it into a platform that services over 25,000 landlords and nearly 50,000 renters across the United States in 5 short-years -- all while keeping his day job, running his rental properties, and financially supporting a family of 4.
Matt will share with you the techniques he learned that allowed him to balance his personal and professional life to create a software as a service business. In this Webinar, he'll cover:
- The Learn Start Up Mentality - What it Means and How to Live it Day by Day
- Why a Slow-Growth Approach is Better for Certain Personality Types
- How Anyone Can Create a SaaS Platform to Create Side Revenue
- Why SaaS is More Lucrative in the Long-Term than Consulting
- The Darkside of Entrepreneurship and Why Its Necessary
