The Startup.com x The Boostpad

Discover how The Boostpad, an entrepreneurial support organization supporting Flexie founder William Ward, found a transformative ally in TheStartup.com.


From Refugee to Tech CEO

William Ward came to the US as a teenage refugee fleeing war and poverty in Liberia. He came with his family, but because of their circumstances, he knew he needed to fend for himself. Unfortunately, finding his first job was challenging, and it remained challenging to find flexible employment as he continued his education. Flexie was born out of that experience. William saw an opportunity in the community for workers who need flexibility and individuals who need short-term help.

The Development of Flexie

Flexie (formerly PettyGigs) instantly connects companies to a large pool of untapped youth talent to fill labor gaps and build a diverse talent pipeline. The platform allows young people the flexibility to find jobs that match their lifestyles, interests, and availability. For students with busy schedules, the platform provides the flexibility to choose when to work and when to study. After working with The Boostpad, Flexie was selected to join one of the most competitive accelerator programs in the United States, Techstars, last fall. TechStars Accelerator program [Austin] has one of the fastest growing, collaborative, and exciting tech ecosystems in the country! They invest in founders they believe can build a meaningful company and attract world-class talent.


"After fleeing the civil war in Liberia to attend college in the US, we lacked flexibility. We worked 2-3 jobs at a time and could not choose when we worked and when we studied. We built Flexie so that others do not have to go through the same experience" - William Ward, Founder of Flexie
