|Title||CEO, TechSoup Global|
Background, education and early career
Masisak received her MBA from the Columbia University Business School, and worked as a management consultant with Coopers & Lybrand for nine years. She also held leadership roles in several Internet businesses. In 2001, she joined the San Francisco nonprofit, CompuMentor (now known as TechSoup Global) with the task of building the organization’s relatively small ‘product philanthropy’ program into both a programmatic hub of the organization and a revenue engine that could support other nonprofit and educational programs.
In her role at CompuMentor, Masisak designed a supply chain that addressed the needs of corporate product donors, end-user recipients and CompuMentor itself. In 2002, she led her team's creation of a business plan called DiscountTech which won a $100,000 grand prize in the Yale School of Management, Goldman Sachs, Pew Charitable Trust's "National Business Plan Competition for Nonprofit Organizations," among over 650 entries.
In 2006, Masisak became co-CEO of the organization, joining founder Daniel Ben-Horin and Marnie Webb forming a 3-member co-CEO office that led the organization until Masisak became TechSoup Global's CEO in 2012.
Honors, talks and writing
In 2008, Masisak led TechSoup Global’s successful bid to receive the Council on Foundations' formal endorsement to create NGOsource. Launched in March 2013, NGOsource is a service that helps U.S. grantmakers streamline their international grantmaking process. NGOsource's mission is to simplify the often expensive, complicated, and duplicative task of evaluating whether a non-U.S. organization is equivalent to a U.S. public charity — a process known as equivalency determination.
