Why InVision Doesn’t Have a Physical Office

story of a startup built entirely online

Business Insider featured the unconventional story of a startup built entirely online with all of its employees working remotely from different parts of the world — InVision.

They have grown to have 700 employees in seven years. As a professional outsourcing agency, their story is nothing short of fantastic. It’s incredible to see a real-life example of how another company has embraced the power of a remote workplace and made it work without the traditional practices of a brick-and-mortar business system.

Not Trading Results for Convenience

Business owners can drastically reduce overhead with a thriving business model that includes remote workers. The remote workers also save time because they can avoid commuting to and from the office. There are many more benefits for both the business owners and remote workers, but these are two that come to mind initially.

Working from anywhere with an internet connection also offers a tremendous amount of flexibility which helps with creativity and motivation.

According to InVision’s CPO Mark Frein, “It’s about results, not where your IP address is. We care about what you’re able to do or achieve. If you’re able to achieve something great while working wonky hours, then that’s great.”

Supporting Business Growth Worldwide

Working with someone halfway around the world has its own challenges, but it doesn’t mean it cannot be done. Many of these challenges can be corrected before they ever happen as long as systems and processes are in place. One perspective that comes into play for growing companies is that projects can be approached with diversity. What this means is that by having a staff with people from different parts of the world, new ideas and concepts have a much larger meaning due to cultural differences in the way we approach various projects.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
