Bham Startup Hustle – FireSeeds Nationally Acclaimed

The Entrepreneur Magazine has recognized a Birmingham tech startup as being one of the “best entrepreneurial companies in America”.

Cord Sachs started Fireseeds in 2011 in hopes to push leaders and movers in the Bham area to have an impact in what ever way possible within the for-profit space

While analyzing how Chick-fil-A operated on the managerial side, Sachs saw a need to recruit/train potential leaders for Birmingham. There are entrepreneurs everywhere, and exploiting those cut out for starting/operating companies is a must in this competitive tech environment.  

To accomplish his mission, the web-based platform, Wildsparq, was brought to life. 

“A mentor of mine, John Lankford (CEO of The Parnassus Group, an executive search firm), inspired me to use the world of recruiting as an entry point to gaining influence into organizations, so we could also help them develop their leaders.”

In a report to the BBJ, Sachs said it is urgency that prompted him to start Fireseeds. The personal development of potential leaders is ever so important in “bottom line profitability”.
