Rebecca Masisak is the CEO of TechSoup Global, formerly known as CompuMentor.[1][2]

Background, education and early career[edit]

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.[citation needed] 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.[citation needed]

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.[3]

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.[citation needed]

Honors, talks and writing[edit]

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.[4]
