In March 2020, a global pandemic forced jobs and schools to abruptly shift to using various forms of remote technology. Many companies and their employees were caught off guard by this dramatic pivot in how to work, but Instant Teams was prepared! Founded remotely by two female active-duty spouses, Instant Teams supports military-connected individuals and untapped talent by helping them find remote employment opportunities through a unique technology platform solution. The company proved itself to be resilient – not just by having employees already comfortable with working remotely – but in securing Series A funding from Tiger Global, as well as unexpected business growth and success in 2021 while still in the midst of the pandemic.

Our founders, Liza Rodewald and Erica McMannes, recently attended the Military Spouse Employment Summit held by Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) and USAA in the U.S. National Chamber of Commerce in Washington, DC. It was here, in our nation’s capital, that representatives from both the business and military communities came together. Director of Military Spouse Programs for HOH, Brian Alvarado, shared recent findings that, “Military spouses have long faced unemployment challenges with an unwavering unemployment rate of 22% to an estimated increase of 38% due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.” There were panel discussions and opportunities to share experiences, frustrations, and successes with regard to raising awareness of untapped talent who can fill the skills gap and be part of a solution to the “great reshuffle” of our country. There has been a lot of movement over the past decade, but there is still a ways to go.
