I had a chance to catch up with Armando Viteri, CEO of neubloc (one of the sponsors of the New Florence blog). Neubloc provides outsourced R&D and IP development services to tech vendors.
Business grew 150% last year. Not shabby - helped by the fact they expanded from Poland to Latin America with centers in Argentina and Ecuador.
And one in Oklahoma City.
3 years ago, jetlagged in Bangalore, a CIO asked me why I could not find him reasonably priced, "rural sourcing" vendors in the US. Now I have a vendor he could consider. With a growing footprint in other global villages.
