#BizX: Flexy takes the schlep out of admin for entrepreneurs

Flexy, a web mobile portal that matches freelancers with opportunities, has been flagged as an innovative network base for entrepreneurs.

The company acts as an agent for freelancers and independent contractors by facilitating rates negotiations, setting up contracts and managing administration.

Pavlo Phitidis suggests that the platform may be a convenient way for big business to find scarce skills without the administrative schlep.

34% of US workers, that is 53 million make up 712 billion a year of flexy or freelance work, it’s a huge industry out there.

I think it’s an important message for parents of young school leavers, people who are currently employed.
