What does hosting a project mean?
Running a business isn't easy. With the daily operations and putting out the occasional fire, startups normally find themselves parking anything outside of their day-to-day. It may be building your brand, understanding why customers drop off at certain points, or increasing the number of leads you can reach.
We're here to build a team around you to run these side projects.
What is a project challenge? A small team of 3-5 professionals and students to work on digital marketing, business development or data analytics. QLC.io provides the training and onboarding through our project scope, and you provide the weekly feedback and insight into your industry and business.

What is QLC.io?
QLC.io helps young professionals and students taste test different career paths through short term projects.
What is an average project like?
Your project team will work on either a Digital Marketing, Business Development or Data Analytics challenge. QLC.io provides the training, mentorship and structure for the project. Project mentors are the subject matter experts who will provide industry insight and feedback on the weekly tasks. Everyone will connect remotely online.
Projects are usually four to six weeks long and a candidate or a small team of 3-5 will be matched to your startup or social enterprise. Participants are expected to commitment 5-10 hours per week on the programme.
So...is this like an internship?
Not at all. QLC.io sets the boundaries around the type of tasks, and the project host will provide feedback on how it applies to their business. Candidates join this project because they are deeply passionate about learning a particular industry or digital skill set.
As it is a learning experience, candidates do not expect remuneration. They join projects because they genuinely want to get involved with your cause, learn from you and develop themselves.
How much time do I need to commit?
Project hosts are expected to check-in with their team at least once a week. On average, most hosts spend about 1 hour per week connecting with their team Skype, reviewing work or giving advice on Slack.
Do Project Hosts need to pay for this?
Nope. What we do expect is your time and commitment for the course of the project.
We are building a global community of thought leaders working on big problems - no matter what stage of the entrepreneurial journey you are at. Our end goal is to help you grow your personal brand, connect and share with others who care about your cause.
How many projects can I list?
As many as you want! For the best experience, we recommend one project per project host at a time.
How is my team chosen?
We do the heavy lifting. All you need to do is list a pre-scoped project. Interested candidates will submit their applications to QLC.io and we will match them to you based on their motivations.
