Business to Business Connections
Crucial for Success
The Flexie Bench facilitates SMEs working together to create joint bids and projects, providing them with a forum to work with new or established businesses and go after larger contracts than they could alone. By partnering with others, these companies have a better chance of getting those big contracts, growing their businesses and getting more contracts in the future.
Banding together and pooling resources to meet common goals is the best way we know to grow and thrive.
The Flexie Bench was designed for this purpose: developing business opportunities through the combined resources of our small business members.
With our joined strengths, our collaborative can offer solutions and services to Central, state and local governments and the commercial sector more efficiently than individual small businesses ever could alone. Thanks to agile, scalable small business partners working together, the Flexie Bench team facilitates new partnerships and new opportunities.
It's hard being small in a world of giants. Big businesses get bigger and push small companies out of the market because the corporate powerhouses have deep pockets, relationships with other giants, support, contacts, and access to opportunities. Small and medium-sized companies simply don’t have those things – at least not in the way we are used to thinking about how businesses usually work.
With the Flexie Bench, your small company can get a piece of the big company action. You will become part of an industry consortium that combines both large and small firms with a common purpose. Capitalize on the size of your competitors as well as your industry associates and partners. The Flexie Bench model lets members share ideas as well as benefit from one another’s collected knowledge.
