Sue Stockdale talks to John Miles, co-founder of iWorker, about why he started up the business and how it helps generate economic prosperity for skilled workers in Venezuela and other countries that are in dire economic situations.John Miles is a Canadian entrepreneur who started his career managing a few small brick-and-mortar businesses just outside of Toronto. In 2017, John decided he wanted to experience a new culture and learn a new language so he cashed out his ownership in the companies he was involved in and bought a one-way ticket to Buenos Aires, Argentina.Soon after arriving in Buenos Aires, John met his now business partner, Jeb. After hearing the stories of food and medicine shortages from their Venezuelan friends who had fled the crisis back in their country, John and Jeb decided to try to do something to help out the situation. They soon got the idea for a socially-focused virtual assistant agency that could connect college educated Venezuelans with online work in North America. Today iWorker has grown to over 300 workers and 700 clients and has expanded to other countries going through economic crisis such as Haiti, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe and Kenya.
