Start-Up Successes


HeroLink, a pre-revenue start-up, was founded with a mission to support our nation's heroes by providing them with unique income-generating opportunities. However, as a start-up, HeroLink faced several challenges. They needed to build a robust e-commerce platform to facilitate these opportunities, but they lacked the technical expertise and resources to do so. They also needed a comprehensive IT strategy to guide their efforts and mitigate potential IT risks.

That's when HeroLink turned to GiG CIO. GiG CIO offers Fractional CIO consulting, advisory, and leadership services, providing the expertise of a proven leader and trusted partner to navigate IT strategies. This arrangement allowed HeroLink to access the expertise of a CIO without the cost of a full-time hire.

They responded to HeroLink's e-commerce Request for Proposal (RFP) with a comprehensive proposal that outlined a strategic approach to building the e-commerce platform. This included a technical business plan that detailed the technology stack, architecture, and resources needed to build and maintain the platform.
