    • Making the Business Case for Impact Sourcing
      Making the Business Case for Impact Sourcing Nish Acharya, Most Recent Director of Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Obama Administration Recorded: Apr 15 2014 4:00 pm UTC 41 mins
    • 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.
