A trusted eCOsystem that breeds curiosity and accelerates global innovation in Science, Technology, and Culture.
Through creating this physi-digital social instrument, we discovered a gold-mine of disruption...
We listened to our communities concerns and identified their unmet needs...
COLLABORATION - A dedicated platform for trusted innovation through collaboration in the STEM field.
EVENTS - An event management software that removes the disorganized and chaotic experience from event hosting.
RECRUITING - There is a profound shortage of qualified talent for these rapidly emerging STEM jobs.
CONSULTING - Companies lack the knowledge and skills to properly implement new technologies in a niche market.
CULTURE - The backbone of community relationships and purpose-driven action.
So why now?
NETWORKS ARE EVOLVING.
PERSPECTIVES ARE CHANGING.
LIVE EVENTS ARE CRITICAL
- 95% of respondents believe that live events provide attendees with a valuable opportunity to form in-person connections in an increasingly digital world.
- The majority (63%) intends to grow their total event budgets by an average of 22% ($7,500) in the next year.
- 92% of over-performing businesses in Software & Services believe live events are instrumental to an organization's success
- 82% of these businesses have strong support from leadership regarding event strategy.
TIME AND MONEY
- On average, businesses save 18.6 hours a month on event planning by using event software.
- Businesses that do use event software are 24% more likely to prove event ROI.
- The median spend by a B2B company sponsoring an event is $20,000 (Marketing Charts, 2018).
TALENT GAPS ARE EXPANDING.
“Employment in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) occupations has grown 79% since 1990, from 9.7 million to 17.3 million, outpacing overall U.S. job growth”http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/01/09/7-facts-about-the-stem-workforce/
With recent Trump events going on, it will be even harder to recruit STEM talent because we cannot hire international people like we used to.
The systemic need for STEM workers is such that big companies such as Google, Apple and Ernst and Young are willing to consider workers without a traditional college degree as long as they can prove they have the required skills.
You can imagine the impact STEM has on the economy by looking at the companies and products revolutionizing our lives. Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and on and on. STEM powers all of them.
STEM companies are not just the classic tech companies. It is already happening & will continue to happen that EVERY company will have major STEM components:
"But Toyota has many STEM jobs with no workers to fill them, he said. They're among about 2.4 million STEM-related jobs expected to remain vacant nationwide this year, according to a news release from Toyota Motor North America."
Google research found that you can search for a simple job like "truck driver" and find that the results obtained in FedEx, UPS, and other delivery services are totally different. They each use different language to describe that very job, so you have to spend a lot of time searching each company's website to find the job you want.
Recruiting Today : For job seekers, the search process can be agonizing, difficult, and frightening. Unlike other searches on the internet, a job search is a very personal thing. You are looking for a position that fits your needs, a job with a company that fits your personality and lifestyle, and an employer that is physically close enough that you can commute or relocate without impacting your family and daily life. All these search "criteria" are important, and almost none of this information is embedded in the job description.
While companies like Glassdoor, Indeed, LinkedIn, and others try to give companies branded pages to promote their company culture and wonderful workplaces, most job descriptions are limited, out of date, and often poorly written - making it hard to tell whether the job is quite what you want.
Behind all this mess is the marketplace of applicant tracking systems (the corporate software that companies use to post jobs, manage applicants, schedule interviews, etc.).
These products are generally old and their search and scoring engines are fairly rudimentary, so all these non-standard jobs on the internet are not only hard for people to search, they are hard to match to candidates. So just as candidates often randomly apply for jobs that aren't a great fit, the ATS has a very difficult time scoring resumes to decide who to call back.
