Looking for a more meaningful job? ReWork takes on the purpose-driven career search

Landing a good job is one thing. But finding a career that is both meaningful and purpose-driven is another challenge altogether. 
ReWork is a Pittsburgh recruiting agency for the new economy, bringing talented people together with companies that offer rewarding careers, whether it means working for a social enterprise, a nonprofit or a company with the right mix of opportunities.
Take Katherine Camp, a Pittsburgh graduate with a master’s degree in international sustainable development. ReWork helped her realize her dream to work abroad by locating a position with a dairy company in India, explains Abe Taleb, ReWork founder.
ReWork evolved out of The Unreasonable Institute in Boulder, Colo, he explains. The program convinced him of the value in pivoting his former company, TerraShift, into a talent recruiting agency for social enterprise. 
“Most of the people we work with are not active job seekers,” he says. “Many (already) work full-time but want more meaningful opportunities. They want to utilize their skills and give their career a better focus.” 
Through an online service, ReWork matches talented individuals from all over the U.S. with national and international organizations committed to making the world a better place. The firm, which launched a year ago, employs 6 full-time people.
Rework is planning a series of forums to introduce entreprenuers and talented professionals to companies who are making a difference. The next Scrimmage in the Rust Belt, a day-long event, will be held on April 6th at Thrill Mill, 6024 Broad St., East Liberty from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.   

The mentors will include Donna Myers of TowerCare Technology, Mike Woycheck of AlphaLab and John Cilli of BHiveLab (part of Brunner Works). The cost is $50 to attend and includes breakfast and lunch.

2012 was a good year for VC growth in Pittsburgh despite a nationwide decline

Venture capital investment across the region continued to climb steadily in 2012 with 79 deals that totaled $168.97 million, a 7.9% increase over 2011 when $156.53 million was raised and spread over 55 deals. 

The news in Pittsburgh was a bright spot; nationally VC figures declined by 10 percent from the prior year. All figures are from the MoneyTree Report by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA), based on data from Thomson Reuters.

“We’re bucking a trend here in Pittsburgh which is very positive,” noted Gary Glausser who joined Innovation Works this month as Chief Investment Officer.

A longtime venture capitalist in the local community, Glausser was with South Side-based Birchmere Ventures for 13 years. He most recently handled alternative investments for the Pennsylvania State Employees Retirement System, a total portfolio of $7 billion. He is also a member of the IW Board of Directors.

Among the highlights of the MoneyTree report for 2012:

The strongest showing in Pittsburgh was the life sciences and software sectors. More than 23 companies received funding in life sciences, predominantly medical device companies, and 19 software and IT services companies were funded. The number of software company deals last year is a sign of the region’s strength in this sector since software companies generally don’t require large infusions of cash, noted Terri Glueck of Innovation Works.

Innovation Works and The Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse (PLSG) were the largest overall investors, IW with 12 deals and PLSG with six according to the MoneyTree report.

The companies that raised the largest rounds included: Avere Systems ($20 million), Thorley Industries ($20 million), TriStar Investors ($15 million) Duolingo ($15 million) Knopp Biosciences ($14.94 million) and BodyMedia ($11.89 million). 

Other local investors included: Birchmere Ventures, Draper Triangle Ventures, Adams Capital Management, BlueTree Allied Angels, Eagle Ventures and Pittsburgh Equity Partners.

“I personally think the next few years will be exciting,” Glausser adds. “We’re looking at a pipeline of opportunities here. Our mission is going to be to get the capital to put into these companies.”
