Mark and his 70-employee team have been training and developing hundreds of college graduates in Nepal to work on data-entry projects from major clients who need high quality work at reasonable costs. The firm has since grown to employ hundreds of workers and is poised to engage several thousand workers in the foreseeable future.

The scope includes bringing employment opportunities to one million people in impoverished countries in the next six years.
