Collage.com on VentureBeat

Collage.com was featured in a story on VentureBeat today on how startups can “win the talent war”:

Entire businesses can be built around a fully flexible model. That’s the case with Collage.com, a 30-person company that makes ordering custom products like photo books easy for people. “We’ve been able to attract great talent by eschewing a traditional physical office,” says spokesperson Graham Davis. “Eliminating the office allows us to recruit across the country, instead of limiting our search to people who live in a limited geographic area.”

Read more about how we “think outside the office” in our co-CEO’s recent Detroit Free Press op-ed.
