OrgSync Recognized by Empact at the United Nations



Dallas, TX (October 28, 2013) - OrgSync has been named to the 2013 Empact Showcase by Empact, an organization that focuses on creating cultures of entrepreneurship communities around the world. The Empact Showcase also recognized co-founder Eric Fortenberry as being among the “Best Companies Started and Run by Young Entrepreneurs” in the United States.

The Empact Showcase is a compilation of companies in the United States started by entrepreneurs who are age 35 or under, and whose annual revenues or operating budgets are more than $100,000. Founders in the Empact Showcase were recognized for their achievements at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City in October.

“It is an honor for OrgSync to be recognized by Empact,” says Eric Fortenberry, Founder and CEO of OrgSync. “When I co-founded OrgSync in 2007, we bootstrapped the operation out of a house in Austin, Texas. We lived together and worked together to make our vision a reality. Today, with our headquarters in Dallas and more than 45 employees, it is remarkable to see how much we have grown.”

OrgSync, used by over 350 campuses and over 2.5 million students, is a leading online community management platform for higher education institutions. The platform creates an online community for campus that helps departments, programs, and all member-based organizations across campus streamline processes and drive engagement.

As a leading online community management platform for higher education institutions, OrgSync is used by more than 350 campuses and over two million students across the US and abroad. OrgSync was founded in 2007 out of a 5-bedroom house in Austin, TX, after Fortenberry encountered challenges running a student organization at the University of Texas at Austin.
