StackX can engage across virtually any vertical or organizational structure, but we are particularly experienced in cybersecurity, information technology, healthcare, financial services and telecommunications. We have experience launching and growing multiple national brands.
The length of StackX engagements depends on the depth, breath, type and number of areas in scope. An engagement could be as brief as one month or up to six months or longer.
It may sound surprising, but our goal is NOT to build this company to simply sell for a large exit. We are blessed to be in a position where we can use our skills and experiences to help organizations grow and thrive and that is where our passion is. We are a for-profit organization, so we do charge for our services but we are committed to charging a fair price for the value we deliver.
In our Xplore discovery phase, we spend time getting to know your organization and understand your goals and objectives. From there we create a detailed proposal that includes only the services and solutions that will accelerate your success. Nothing else.
Flexibility is key so we have options!
Option 1: A reasonable hourly rate. You pay for the time we spend working for your organization.
Option 2: Fixed fee or rate per project. If we exceed what is in scope we don’t charge additional fees.
Option 3: A monthly retainer. We work as an extension of your team to complete all projects.
