Rooted in Tacoma, cloudPWR’s Shadrach White delivers tech solutions for governments everywhere
Throughout his career, Shadrach White has participated in hundreds of successful government IT projects. While more often than not we hear about the failed IT projects, White thinks little credit is given to efforts that transform the work process and ultimately serve the public interest.
“There are unique challenges when selling and delivering solutions in the public sector but these solutions tend to have financial longevity and they make a positive impact to the communities they serve,” said White, who is founder and CEO of cloudPWR, a Tacoma, Wash.-based cloud software company working on digital transformation solutions for government and public agencies across Washington state and beyond.
Beyond the work he and his company are doing, our latest Geek of the Week is also an impactful member of the Tacoma business community. White is a mentor for the Tacoma Challenge, an advisory board member for the University of Washington Tacoma School of Engineering and Technology, and a frequent guest lecturer for UW Tacoma’s Entrepreneurship program.
He was the first Tacoma business leader selected to present at the inaugural Founders Live South Sound in February and works closely with Startup253 founder Lee Reeves to mentor and drive awareness for the Tacoma startup ecosystem, helping organize and promote New Tech Tacoma’s happy hour event series — when there’s not a pandemic.
