For Clients

Small businesses & startups have the opportunity to innovate & disrupt different industries, but the challenge is bringing the right talent together. It is rare for a single company to have all the required engineering & manufacturing capabilities under one roof. Many small businesses & startups have opted to outsource engineering & manufacturing functions to remain competitive, but have a tough time finding the right freelancers & contractors for the job. Assist 2 Develop is the answer.

For Freelancers

Most engineers we speak with love creating products that they are interested in or can make a difference in society, but it’s tough to find that type of work on a consistent basis. So they sit behind their computer day dreaming about starting their own design / engineering firm to break free of the corporate shackles, but they don’t know where to start. Assist 2 Develop is the answer.

Traditional marketplace bidding wars cause a headache for both parties. Companies who post their engineering needs have to filter through hundreds of bids to find the right freelancer for the job. Meanwhile, freelancers have to compete with hundreds of other providers and have no way to differentiate themselves. Assist 2 Develop has a unique vetting process that connects companies with the right freelancer for the right job.
