What is the Free Agent?

Posted 6 years ago

The Free Agent was founded with one objective, to become the connective tissue between high-value experts and the companies that need them most. Our entire business model is built around this objective, and we strive every day to bring the right experts to our partners, at precisely the right time.

While we partner with companies for a myriad of reasons, the timing in which we can add the most value is when companies are in hyper-growth or experiencing inertia.  This is because the Free Agents we bring to bear are all battle tested, generally having already overcome a similar challenge to that which your company is currently facing. This way, you can get back to what you do best, quicker than ever before.   

The majority of our Free Agents have run entire organizations for Fortune 500 companies, been serial entrepreneurs, highly specialized executives, career consultants, or recently exited a growth company.  We pull our resources from a variety of industries, verticals, and backgrounds to ensure we have your flanks covered.  Currently, our core competencies include the technology sector, sales and marketing, strategy, operations, and finance.  We strive to bring only the type of SME that needs a thirty-minute brief, prior to impacting your bottom line.

Our high-touch business model is simple- we work directly with our partners to understand their needs and utilize our vetted and curated network of executive-level subject matter experts (SME) to bridge the gap during an engagement.  Each of our Free Agents undergoes a rigorous interview and vetting process and is hand-selected based on background and pedigree.  The whole purpose is that we bring an SME to the table that has relevant industry experience and knowledge to guarantee they hit the ground running.  

In addition to our high-touch business model, we also utilize our proprietary platform to automate the process, ultimately reducing time to market and associated costs.  In our world, it shouldn’t be a laborious process to bridge a mission-critical gap. Simply join our platform, post your need(s) and have a multitude of SME’s to choose and collaborate with. The purpose of our platform is to bring our Free Agents much closer to the companies that need them, harnessing the full power of the gig economy.

About the Free Agent- The Free Agent utilizes a vetted bench of battle-tested experts that work directly with companies in hyper-growth. Simply put, we provide the right strategic experts at precisely the right time in order to accelerate results.  If you are interested in learning more, or joining our vetted and curated platform, please do not hesitate to reach out.  We live and breathe the gig economy and are always interested in beginning a dialogue.
