We're on a mission to connect one million people in the developing world to digital-age work, while raising them up as leaders to address poverty in their own communities.
Now everyone can access a cloud-based, on-demand workforce. No more overinvesting in hiring, training, managing - just high quality results in near real-time.
We believe that talent is equally distributed around the world, but opportunity is not. Every day we're creating new leaders who can contribute to the global economy.
A Simple Idea to Change The World
Someone once told me that, "Geeks will change the world!". So what would happen if a bunch of geeks moved their families half-way around the world and founded a tech startup to help fight poverty?
Ten years ago the first family came for a two week vacation to Nepal and ended up staying because they fell in love with a beautiful country and beautiful people. Since then, others have moved themselves and their families to join a new type of company. One that cares more about social impact than profit. But a company also wise enough to know that profit is what deepens our social impact over the long term.
The ideas come out of our years working with web applications, mobile apps, big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, gamification, data entry & processing, transcription, outsourcing, crowdsourcing and more (remember ... we are geeks!). But it all boils down to using technology to flatten the world, connect people into the global economy and raise up leaders to fight poverty and change their communities. We are changing the way the world works.
We think the outsourcing model is inefficient and broken. Our inspiration in solving this problem comes from the assembly line model, introduced to the world 100 years ago and the resulting disruption of the entire manufacturing industry. Entire nations were transformed by the advent of the assembly line and mass production was at the foundation of this revolution.
Instead of ten mechanical engineers completely building one car at a time, the process was broken down into 84 steps and had workers specialized in each of those steps produce the same car along an assembly line. This assembly line approach produced higher quality cars at a faster rate while decreasing the price for customers and increasing the money employees took home at the end of the day. But what does this look like in the information economy?
It isn't just the process of building a car that can be broken down into a production line design. Almost every organization has business processes that can be solved with the same approach. CloudFactory uses a combination of the latest technology and an on-demand, global workforce to bring production lines into the realm of digital work. Tedious backoffice work can now be completed faster, cheaper and to a higher accuracy thanks to CloudFactory.
