TechTuesday – Not Just About the Benjamins – How CAVU Uses its Benefit Corporation Status to Help the Community AND Succeed in Business

September 20 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join TechBirmingham and CAVU for September’s TechTuesday! Lunch will be provided. Registration is free for TechBirmingham Members

What do Patagonia, Kickstarter, and Method have in common with the new tech startup, CAVU? All these companies are Benefit Corporations, which are companies that balance profit and purpose. Chris Sims, CEO and Founder of CAVU, will share the journey to build a company founded on democratizing training that once was exclusive to a few insiders in the Tech Industry, while building a social learning platform sought after by corporations. CAVU is Alabama’s first Benefit Corporation and has a mission to create good for the people it serves while earning great value for its investors.

Chris Sims, founding team member, CEO, and Chief Product Owner of CAVU, found his stride as a software engineer and project manager during his management information systems studies at the University of Alabama. Now, with over 20 years of programming and 16 years of project management experience under his belt, Chris confidently leads his team to identify complex problems and push the boundaries to achieve high-performing, innovative and sleek solutions.

Chris leverages his mastery of Agile philosophy, Scrum methodology, and mentoring techniques to build collaborative and creative project teams that are empowered to deliver dynamic results. His passion is coaching clients-from startups to the C-Suite of Fortune 100 enterprise organizations grow and create engaged teams of innovators.
