MobileServe is a fast-growing mobile app company that helps organizations track and encourage participation in volunteer activities: tracking, managing, and reporting their social impact. They're a great example of how you can see a problem in your own workplace and then create your own solution that you and many others can use. They're also a great example of how a Louisville area company can help us participate in the Rise of the Rest of the entrepreneurial startups in the U.S. In this podcast, I talk with Ben Reno-Weber. Ben and his co-founder Chris Head, started MobileServe to solve a problem that Ben saw while he was working as the CEO of the Kentucky YMCA Youth Center. He wanted a better way to track the activities and participation of volunteers. These guys are great examples of how to pick an idea and get started, even while you're still working your day job. Well, they're full time now and chugging along very well with successful capital raises and customer growth.
