Stan Garber is the president and co-founder of Scout RFP. He got his start in entrepreneurship early, founding ONOSYS while he was still a student at Case Western Reserve University. His experiences at ONOSYS, which was acquired by livingsocial in 2012, made him acutely aware of the need for a simple yet effective strategic sourcing tool — which led him to co-found Scout RFP in 2014.
