Kevin Price, Host of the Price of Business on Business Talk 1110 AM KTEK (on Bloomberg’s home in Houston) recently interviewed Adam Navarrete, Business Development and Director of Social Media for Kaleio.

Tell me about your firm.

Kaleio is a small startup with under ten employees, based out of Southern California. With the Kaleio network and platform, we see a unique opportunity to serve both individuals and companies through Kaleio.com, which is free and open to anyone, but we’re also seeing a great response to our Private Label platform from small and large companies wanting to better manage their internal communications.

What is your technology story?

Kaleio was started out of the desire to provide an open platform where anyone desiring to have a place to connect with others by what they do for a living. A place for teachers, nurses, firefighters, construction workers, youth leaders, computer programmers, and anyone else looking to connect, to have sense of community, while providing a place to search for new opportunities. And we wanted to give both small and large businesses a place to connect with these users.When businesses are hiring, they can post openings to Kaleio or filter through user profiles, using Kaleio as a free recruiting tool. If launching new products, services, or wanting to promote a special offer, they could do so for free, making their budgets go further.Additionally, while testing the market, we’ve discovered that there’s a need for better internal communication within companies, so we introduced a Private Label version of Kaleio.

Why is this significant?
What makes our story and platform so compelling is that we were born out of a need to service an overwhelming population of working-class professionals that do not have a dedicated, affordable (read, free) networking platform to connect with other by what they do for a living.Whereas Facebook has a seventh of the total world population on it, the average user is not using Facebook as a professional tool in order to connect with others, find jobs, collaborate with co-workers, or to promote their personal brand. Nor are those same user-types heading over to LinkedIn in droves. Until Kaleio, they were left without a professionally-focused network that fits their needs.

Who are the beneficiaries of this technological breakthrough?

While we take pride in the fact that we are not only growing amongst CEOs and business leaders, on the individual-user level, we’re embracing the attention we’re getting from the entire workforce community, not just a subsection of businesses and professional trades.

Moreover, our Private Label solution is perfect for companies wanting to have their own internal network for the company to engage with their employees. We’re seeing a lot of interest from small business all the way up to state-wide organizations and national brands.

What type of companies are good customers for your firm?

We see ourselves best serving companies that are growing and are having difficulty managing internal communication via traditional email or infrequent meetings. Specifically, companies with either multiple locations or shift workers can grow and facilitate a company culture, community, and communication that would otherwise struggle or simply not happen at all.
