On the 10th February last year, AFEP* organized “Le Top”, a prestigious speed-networking event between CAC40 company directors and top executives from some of France’s most innovative companies. This meeting’s objective was to share experiences and ideas to create new opportunities. LittleBIG Connection was one of just 2 startups selected by AXA for its ability to connect major groups with the new realities of the consulting market.
The world of work is undergoing a radical rejuvenation of its model. New challenges are always cropping up. With the advent of millennials and the digitalization of the market, companies and employees alike know there is a need to evolve by finding more flexible and effective solutions through increasingly direct trusting relationships.
This is particularly true for the consulting industry, dominated by traditional technological consulting companies holding firmly to a client-referred approach. The process of linking clients with independent or specialized service providers is thus plagued with contractual and commercial pitfalls which inflate costs and slow things down. This model is no longer in line with market players’ expectations.
LittleBIG Connection is the solution to revolutionizing this market. Through its platform, the company instantly links companies and experts throughout the world. The system frees itself from the constraints of successive sub-contracting and has the following advantages:
- intermediation costs are 4 to 5 times lower than in traditional approaches
- number of companies referenced for buyers is reduced
- users have access to a larger panel in terms of expertise
Enticed by this bespoke and innovative offer, AXA decided to trust LittleBIG Connection by choosing it to participate in AFEP’s “Le Top” event, with a view to exchanging ideas with the CEOs of Total, L’Oréal, Société Générale and Carrefour, amongst others.
After only 5 years, Little BIG Connection is proving to be the platform specializing in engineering and IT services with clients such as AXA, EDF or Amadeus. Having quickly gone international, Little BIG Connection draws on a community of 150,000 experts. The company experienced 3-figure growth in 2018 and envisions recruiting 40 new talented people in 2019, whilst aiming to achieve 100 million Euros in turnover.
