Needle is currently running its mobile contact center out of a large RV. Though the company will be returning to a normal office, it is showcasing how startups can set up shop almost anywhere.
Morgan with the RV
SAN FRANCISCO -- Needle CEO Morgan Lynch stands in the doorway of the RV his startup leased to set up shop on the road. Though the company -- which contracts with companies to provide experts to do live chats with end users--also has an office in Salt Lake City, it has been driving the RV around to showcase the idea that startups can be located anywhere, even on the road.
Doug Fleming, a former professional video game player, works inside the RV while it's parked in San Francisco today. Fleming is helping Astro Gaming by doing live chats with the company's customers about its gaming headphones.
