Abstract

Founded by Mark Sears in 2011, Cloud Factory addresses two problems at once. First, the shortage of jobs in emerging markets like Nepal, and second, the structural gaps in traditional outsourcing models. Inspired by Henry Ford’s assembly line framework, the platform splits up work into smaller tasks and delegates these simpler, more manageable workloads to the CloudWorkers on CloudFactory. This streamlines how individuals accomplish whatever has been outsourced to them, allowing them to do more, and hence, earn more without sacrificing quality. Client businesses are then able to focus their efforts on higher-value work.
