Companies can also benefit from the SoftStack Factory Program

One of the ways companies, entities and start up ventures can sponsor SSF is to commision a mobile application built by the SSF students and mentors.

Why SSF is great for your company

Although SoftStack Factory is a nonprofit organization it is run like a for-profit business from top to bottom. SoftStack Factory executes against specific financial metrics just like any for-profit business. SoftStack clients can expect the same level of service and value they would receive from the very best software development companies. Because the SoftStack financial model is designed to balance revenues and expenses each local SoftStack instantiation requires only one initial funding event—after that, the local SoftStack operation earns sufficient revenues and creates sufficient cash-flow to grow to the scale that fits the community it serves.

What makes SoftStack Factory different is the speed and efficiency of the process it applies to transform raw, local talent into productive participants in the digital economy. The SoftStack process is based upon the following three core principles:

  1. Apply advanced methods to identify the best local raw talent–individuals with the “stuff” it takes to succeed in the SoftStack program.
  2. Accelerate learning by engaging learners immediately in real development projects for real clients working side-by-side with highly experienced software professionals.
  3. Refine the definitions of the multitude of traditional roles in the software development ecosystem to increase efficiency.
