1Mby1M Deal Radar 2010: ShopIgniter, Portland, Oregon

Posted on Tuesday, Nov 16th 2010

As we saw in the recent Tech Stocks post on Amazon and eBay, retail analysts expect e-commerce to increase at a much higher rate than traditional sales this November and December. Social commerce is still small: blogs and social networking sites are the first step in the shopping process for just 3% of customers. But companies such as ShopIgniter, the creator of a social commerce suite called sCommerce, believe that this number will only grow and that the 2010 holiday season will be a defining period for the blending of e-commerce and social networking.

1Mby1M Deal Radar 2010: GlobeTask

Posted on Monday, Nov 8th 2010

“Anybody can go offshore and find somebody for four bucks an hour. But to find somebody who understands your culture and speaks your language, and knows where you’re coming from, that’s one step up,” says Josh Last, CEO and founder of GlobeTask, of his company’s approach. How important is the cultural factor? Tony Scott’s interviews with CEOs from around the world are just one of the blog’s attempts to gain a sense of how managers and workers view the role of national cultures in business. Opinions and models vary greatly, as we have seen in recent posts. On the one hand, onshoring, where U.S. companies outsource work not overseas but to U.S. workers in lower-cost rural locations, is on the rise. A recent Deal Radar profile featured Greytip, an Indian company committed to serving India-based clients. On the other hand, my interview with Gary Swart of oDesk shows that the virtual assistant market is becoming more popular, with an increasing number of opportunities for offshore workers. With GlobeTask, Last aims to avoid some of the disadvantages of cross-cultural teams yet allow clients to reap the benefits of outsourcing and off-shoring. >>>
