Small Business Lunch at Halls
The King Street Marketing Group and Halls Chophouse are pleased to present Nate DaPore, President and CEO of PeopleMatter, as our guest speaker for Small Business Lunch at Halls, Thursday, July 10th.
PeopleMatter, the largest high tech employer on the peninsula, has its national headquarters right here on King Street in historic downtown Charleston.
Just a few years ago PeopleMatter began as a two-person operation in the Flagship Charleston's premier co-working facility for knowledge-based businesses.
Now, PeopleMatter is the fastest growing provider of talent management for the services industry in the country, according to PR Newswire. They have already expanded to a second building on King and there is more to come according to DaPore.
As a small business owner you need to
**Find and hire the best people for your brand, faster.
**Train and grow a skilled, passionate team.
**Create and optimize schedules for an on-the-go workforce
PeopleMatter is a powerful and complete workforce management platform designed to fit the specific needs of service-industry brands that you know like Dunkin' Donuts, Residence Inns by Marriott, Jiffy Lube and Wendy's.
PeopleMatter helps more than 41,000 service-industry locations thrive through better efficiency, engagement and customer satisfaction. Their complete set of mobile, workforce solutions and business analytics tools connect processes, employees and customers in entirely new ways.
Prior to starting PeopleMatter, Nate was a principal at Battery Park Ventures, an investment company, where he focused on healthcare and technology companies. Prior to BPV, he served as VP of Enterprise Sales with consistent triple-digit, year-over-year growth at Benefitfocus from the early days as a startup through its rise as the largest employer benefits software (SaaS) provider in the U.S.
He sits on the Board of Directors of the Charleston Digital Corridor and is active in the Young Presidentsʼ Organization (YPO), the Communications Chair for the YPO Food and Beverage Network and a Mentor for the 500 Startups. Mr. DaPore became a fellow for the American Swiss Foundation in 2013. He was named Economic Ambassador in 2013 by the South Carolina Department of Commerce. In 2012, he was a 40 Under 40 winner from The Business Journal. He received TiE Atlantaʼs "Top Up-and-Coming Entrepreneur" of the Year Award in 2011.
