Our team regularly volunteers time within the local community. Vicki Iverson, Co-Founder, and CTO, actively supports the women in technology community and is involved closely with TecDE, Founder Institute and Microsoft YouthSpark. Graeme Barlow, our Director of Marketing is also a mentor in the tech community and is often found at mentoring events across the city. Megan Martin, one of our Account Managers, mentors teenage girls through Technovation, a global program that helps girls to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through technology. Our Junior Mobile Developer, Brittany Serrador, is donating her time to HTML150, to help organizations and local startups learn HTML & CSS.
Iversoft has partnered with not-for-profit companies like the Ottawa Humane Society and Right Bike to provide platforms that allow them to interact with their community easily. We provided the Ottawa Humane Society with two native apps and Right Bike a beautiful, intuitive website.
How we help.
Benefits of giving back.
Iversoft has been committed to improving the tech community since beginning operations in 2009. Through volunteering, charitable giving, sponsorship of events, and hosting workshops, we provide support that strengthens the tech ecosystem and gives back to the community.

Offering competitive pricing to those that are eligible, means we facilitate change in the community. We understand that certain businesses do not always have the financial backing to connect with their community easily, and we want to change that.
We encourage our team to donate their time and do their part to help the Ottawa ecosystem thrive. They are our strongest asset, and we want to grow together, and that means what's important to them personally is important to the company. We ensure we carve out time from our busy work schedules to give back. Our most recent community initiative was a team blood donation at Canadian Blood Services.
