Over the past few years, a budding tech industry has taken off in Los Angeles. Many companies have flocked to the “Silicon Beach,” along with them came hungry job-seekers. Last week, Convoso headed to TechFair LA to network with 11,000+ talented attendees searching for opportunity and more than 200 other top Los Angeles-area tech companies.
At Tech Fair, Team Convoso had a great time making new connections, and of course, putting our signature game-twist on the event! Convoso collected hundreds of resumes and talked with many wonderful prospects… we even ran out of all of our business cards! Booth visitors won Convoso swag prizes, and one grand prize winner walked away with a pair of Samsung Virtual Reality Glasses (Congrats Buck!).
Convoso CEO, Nima Hakimi says that the highlight of the day for him came during an interview given by former LA Lakers head coach Byron Scott. “Byron talked about how the biggest attribute that he sees makes great athletes successful is one that directly can be applied to entrepreneurs as well- and that attribute is having drive.” Recalls Hakimi , “It’s so true, and is incredibly important.”
The event, hosted by LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and Entrepreneur in Residence Jason Nazar, boasted a mix of 200+ tech giants and small startups, with companies such as AirBnb, Snapchat, Uber, and more. Amongst some of the most innovative and companies to watch: Skert, Space X, and Sooth. Overall, an incredible event, and Team Convoso is already looking forward for next year!
Convoso booth attendees were very intrigued and enthusiastic about a software that seeks to better the life of the agent, and extremely interested in the implementation of gamification in our call center platform. “This is so different from what you see all the time with other software,” Said Mary, a previous call center manager, “I really like the ideas in it! Looking out for the agent. I would’ve implemented this into my call center in an instant.”
