It’s hard to believe it’s been 32 months since we founded RiseSmart in February 2007. Both because the time has flown by, and because we’ve accomplished so much in such a short period with the help of our employees, investors, business partners — and especially our customers. We recently put together a fact sheet in preparation for our participation at the HR Technology Conference & Expo in Chicago next week (Booth 131 — come see us!), so I thought I’d share it here also:
RiseSmart Fact Sheet
San Jose, Calif.-based RiseSmart is transforming the way companies provide outplacement services and individuals use the Web to find jobs.
RiseSmart Transition Concierge, the company’s outplacement offering, was highlighted in an Aug. 20 Wall Street Journal story as a low-cost, high-tech alternative to traditional outplacement services.
A 2008 survey by Kelton Research showed that online jobseekers who do not have the benefit of RiseSmart’s services are spending an enormous amount of time — an average of 50 hours per month — searching the Web for jobs.
The company’s leadership team includes Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO; Dan Davenport, vice president of operations and finance; and Hitesh Shah, vice president of engineering. Venkat Mohan, general partner of NVP, serves with Sathe on the company’s board of directors.
Thanks for reading the RiseSmart Blog — and for following our progress.
