Our People

At Laisar we believe that an organization that directly engages with its local community is a stronger company and here at Laisar we provide the services and tools that are used to collect, monitor and measure the economic and social impact of jobs creation, small and diverse business spend.

Our team enables organizations to think differently about community engagement and socio-economic impact by leveraging our proprietary data science and analytics platform to develop economic inclusion strategies.

Our Implementors, System Architects, Business Analysts and other experts collaborate to help business leaders target, manage, measure, and report sustainability performance while others get ahead.

Our big vision

Our big vision for Laisar is to harness the power of information and data to improve the lives of people.

We aim to expand our services across the United States and the rest of the world, and to be recognized globally as a management consulting firm delivering operations management and innovative technology solutions that help organizations understand how their products and services impact the communities in which they operate and how they can use data to achieve sustainability and have a greater social and economic impact on their surrounding communities.

Organizations of all sizes are increasingly seeing the value of doing business with local supply chains and specifically with diverse businesses within their communities.
