Culturescape was created to use technology to improve the workplace. We want to make tools that foster great company cultures and bring people together away from their computers and phones.
John Gore learned the importance of personal connections at an early age, living in eleven different cities by the age of 20. While John has an engineering background with undergraduate and graduate degrees in Software Engineering, the importance of human factors in success has become his passion. Over a decade in technology consulting and professional facilitation has given John a front row seat to observe the impact a deliberate focus on culture can have. John also experienced this first hand as a partner at Table XI, helping steer the organization through a fivefold increase in size. John’s goal in founding Culturescape is to help companies recognize the importance of company culture and, more importantly, actively develop a positive culture.
