Early in his career, Robert Grosshandler co-founded and led the SOFTA Group, Inc. He helped grow the real estate management and analysis software firm from a spare bedroom startup into a 10,000-client and 25,000-daily-user firm worth $16 million annually. At the time, Grosshandler’s firm ranked among the nation’s 500 fastest-growing companies.
During the 1990s, he developed Intercast LLC. With Motorola as a technology partner, the company developed location centric applications for wireless devices built around Apple’s Newton technology. Later, Grosshandler co-founded eComXpo – the online virtual trade fair for the e-commerce industry – and Outsourced Site Services, LLC, a Chicago-based company providing marketing, accounting, and fulfillment services to e-commerce companies nationwide.
Robert Grosshandler studied economics at Northwestern University, but left school because, as he says, he “had other things to do.” Today, he participates annually in a Harvard business program. He is a member of the World Presidents’ Organization and board member emeritus at both the Chicago High Tech Association and the Information Technology Association of America.
