A marketplace connecting high-growth start-ups to a network of freelance consultants and experts ranging from strategy and fundraising advisors, early stage experts, growth hacking specialists, route-to-market strategists to part-time CFOs…

A strong advisor in start-up strategy, fundraising, marketing plan, monetization, scalability and growth hacking is often the difference between an incredibly successful start-up and one that just gets by – and often fails.

LINKDPRO allows start-ups looking for specialised expertise on a project-basis to connect to quality freelance strategy advisors and start-up experts who possess solid work experience from top consulting firms such as Mckinsey, Bain, BCG, Accenture, Deloitte, PwC and other leading professional services firms.

LINKDPRO is FREE to use and start-ups do not pay any commission or placement fees should they find a match through our platform. LINKDPRO withholds 20% of any monies paid to freelance advisors and experts who find project opportunities through our platform.

With our exclusive network of more than 1,000 top freelance business consultants, advisors and experts, we have successfully completed projects for leading South African:

  • Start-ups;
  • Small businesses;
  • Medium businesses;
  • Large corporates (all JSE-listed);
  • Consulting firms; and
  • Private equity firms.

Our innovative and disruptive delivery model is widely being embraced by forward-thinking start-ups who are efficiently sourcing top freelance talent which delivers great project work at the fraction of the cost of traditional professional services firms, thus giving them a competitive edge to achieve accelerated growth.

    Lorien Gamaroff, CEO Bankymoon

    Schalk Nolte, Founder Entersekt

  • Slide is now well on the way to causing significant disruption in the South African fintech sector. We would not have been able to break into the South African market so rapidly without the help provided by AlphaCode.

    Alon Stern, Founder Slide

  • AlphaCode has been instrumental in providing a platform for us to access industry thought leaders, networks, working space, coaching and ultimately the opportunity to pitch to global multi-nationals and secure funding that very few startups get to land in their first year.

    Priya Mistry, Founder CommuScore

  • AlphaCode has been instrumental in the growth of our business. Through the club, we have met many like-minded entrepreneurs and businesses with whom we have formed strategic partnerships. The team is incredibly generous with their time and continue to give us invaluable mentorship and support.
