Like the ‘social media guru’, almost anyone can call themselves a ‘consultant’. It can be quite a vague job title, which means that for businesses who need consultants, it takes a lot of time to weed out the best. Geelong startup Pundit Connect has launched a platform to help. Targeting customers that are working on projects worth between $10,000 and $200,000, it allows users to post descriptions of their projects and receive competitive quotes for services.
FindaConsultant is the latest online service to help bring businesses and consultants together. The Australian startup aims to disrupt the B2B sector where there has been a notable lack of tailored recommendations for businesses.
