He was looking for tools to better manage his donors, participants, and volunteers. It was through this experience that Tal learned about Salesforce. The adoption of Salesforce into his everyday work was what sparked the inception of Cloud for Good, a Salesforce implementation partner working primarily with nonprofit and educational institutions to create and implement strategic solutions based on cloud technology. Tal was chosen in 2010 to be one of the first Salesforce.com MVP Program members, an exclusive club representing the top 1% of the Salesforce community, and has maintained that status to date.
