The company’s software-as-a-service aims to serve companies that rely on people they don’t manage directly. The software allows users to collaborate around specific actions and receive incentives for their participation, CEO and co-founder George Elfond said. Customers so far include The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which is using the service to encourage college students to collaborate on lobbying initiatives, and Burger King, which plans to use Rallyware to encourage collaboration among franchise owners.
George concentrates on business strategy, business development, and operations. He has always been active and passionate about organizing various groups to achieve results around an idea or purpose. Prior to Rallyware, George worked as a strategy consultant at L.E.K. Consulting’s Los Angeles and London offices. George earned his BS in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and BA in Applied Mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley, an MBA from the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania, and an MPA from Harvard Kennedy School.
