Dream Incubator Inc., Work Style Lab, Inc. and Flexing It Services Pvt. Ltd. Announce Strategic Partnership Focused on High-quality Flexible Workforce Solutions for the Japan-India Corridor
Helping Clients Take a Seamless, Flexible Approach to Cross-Border Projects
Tokyo/Delhi, 5/8/19 – Dream Incubator Inc. (DI), Work Style Lab, Inc. (WSL) and Flexing It Services Pvt. Ltd. (Flexing It), today announced a strategic partnership, combining the forces of three leaders in highquality flexible workforce implementation to support Japan-based businesses expanding in India, as well as India-based clients operating in and exploring business opportunities in Japan.
DI is focused on capitalizing on, and meeting the needs of the growing shift towards an ‘on-demand’ talent model in the Japanese consulting industry. DI acquired WSL in August 2018 to provide a platform that would support matching business projects and freelance consultants in Japan.
Flexing It, headquartered in New Delhi, India, is a technology-driven platform that connects organizations to independent consultants and expertise on demand, and helps them manage their flexible workforce seamlessly. With over 65,000 professionals, Flexing It has Asia’s largest community of experienced independent consultants and flexible talent across skill-sets including strategy, marketing, project management, supply chain among many others.
Responding to a surge in the number of Japan-India cross-border projects, especially in market entry, this partnership creates seamless access to top-tier flexible expertise to help Japanese businesses in India. The partnership will also support Indian corporations, including the new wave of startups, looking to develop and rapidly scale their businesses in Japan. Additionally, the partnership’s combined network and experience will provide freelance consultants in both countries a variety of exciting opportunities to work on cross-border projects and, expand their capabilities and expertise.
“ DI strongly believes that a society which strategically leverages professional talent on demand from the world over will emerge in the near future. This trend began first in the US, has gained solid ground in Western Europe, is rapidly increasing in India and has recently manifested itself even in Japan. Following last year’s partnership with Catalant from the US, this strategic partnership with Flexing It from India is another step forward in creating a network of clients and freelancers in Japan and globally.”
