Be a part of an enterprising community
Entrepreneurship is a relentless learning curve. It’s the non-stop express through unfamiliar territory and out-of-left-field challenges. We created IO Flex to give founders and business leaders access to Early-Stage Advisors, cost-saving start-up perks, and a network of like-minded peers.
IO Flex is flexible to meet your needs when you need it most – giving you the key to a select roster of the best business resources for every phase of your business.
This free IO program has proven to be a valuable business partner for companies like Crank to help us achieve our HR goals as the company scales up.
We are fortunate to be able to engage with passionate and authentic subject matter experts on topics such as talent management, strategic HR, employee engagement and team leadership.
We are so very proud of what we have been able to achieve with the help of the team of Advisors; including, an improved five-year plan and investment readiness, a well-articulated strategy for growth, and an effective quarterly business review process.
The access to a variety of Advisors… has made a significant impact on both my professional success and that of the company.
