Evidence.Com includes an automated redaction tool, audit trails for chain of custody purposes, and functionality to share evidence with prosecutors and others. A free version is offered specifically for prosecutors to receive and manage incoming digital evidence.  When a law enforcement agency subscribes to the Evidence.com service, a small video camera worn by the officer captures video of officer encounters.

ZeroDegrees, a social business network, was founded by Jas Dhillon in 2002, as a technology incubation inside Pivotal Ventures. ZeroDegrees enabled professionals to find their “Dream Job” faster by using the power of personal networks.

ZeroDegrees was based on an experiment conducted in 1967, by Stanley Milgram, a Harvard University social psychologist. Milgram sent 300 letters to randomly selected residents of Omaha, Nebraska. Milgram asked recipients to forward a letter to a designated “target” person using only their personal networks. Most everyone chose to cooperate. They forwarded the letter to someone they thought might be closer to the ultimate target. This started a chain from one colleague to the next until the target was reached. It turned out the average number of steps from the Omaha originator to the ultimate Boston-based target was six, giving birth to the oft-heard expression: “six degrees of separation.”

What Milgram accomplished offline ZeroDegrees created and launched online, as one of the first successsful Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) Social Business Networking services.

  1. Founded ZeroDegrees and scaled team based in organic growth.
  2. Built user base to 1.1 million professional consumers (Prosumers) within 13 months of launch.
