About this project

Swapability is Disrupting Talent Management 

Swapability is the new way to get things done! It's like online match making for professional staff exchange.

In a few easy steps, managers create a Swapability account and get ready to find staff exchange opportunities with other managers.

In a nutshell...

  • Managers create a Swapability account, confirm their industry association and set their match preferences.
  • Then, managers post projects they have coming up with the skill set they could use in a helping hand.
  • Next, managers list their staff (and their skills) that they are willing to temporarily share with another organization.
  • And finally, the fun part... managers review the potential staff exchange opportunities that Swapability finds for them. They can then connect with other managers they are matched with to discuss a temporary staff augmentation exchange.

The Swapability Team - We Know Our Industry

We believe a disruption in the labor market is possible. We are innovative, visionary and brave. When you want to revolutionize the way organizations get things done, you have to be brave enough to try something a little crazy. 

Our small team has over 20 years of professional experience in an industry that desperately needs staff augmentation exchange opportunities. Our colleagues are waiting for a solution like this. A long-time, international colleague recently wrote to us stating:

"This is absolutely fantastic. I really love it. May I share this? ...The idea is great; collectivism works because it enables many and grows many."


The Swapability Story - Solving the Labor Dilemma for Managers

Our Founder & CEO has a solid history in technology, most recently as a Chief Information Officer. As a senior technology leader, both domestic and international, she knows the budget struggles facing leaders first hand. Her desire for us to advance the mission of our organizations through strategic partnerships that share our most valuable resource (our people) is finally a reality through Swapability.

We Are Almost There & Could Use Your Help  

We have self-funded for awhile as we have built, re-built, relocated and improved the solution. We have a solid team and we are finally ready!

Our beta site is ready. We could use your help to raise capital for our public launch marketing efforts. While we have a solid network of professional connections, the myriad of publications, conferences and marketing opportunities create immediate expenses. We could use your help to make our final push! 

Be a part of the next exciting tech start-up aimed at disrupting the talent management space. Those that support us at the $250+ mark will receive their beta code immediately upon project funding. 

We are ready to roll and hope you join us for the ride!

It is time for managers to rethink how we get things done! Thank you for being a part of our talent management disruption journey.

Risks and challenges

Remember - you aren't funding creation of a product. Our product is ready to launch. We are only testing and adding some final feature improvements.

The biggest obstacle we will face after this Kickstarter project is fully funded is letting the world in on our secret and mailing out all of the awesome rewards. However, don't worry - we have a team ready to devote their time to prompt reward fulfillment upon project funding.

Help us reach our goal and be a part of the new way to get things done!
