HOW OUR

Harnessing the unique power of the IE network

That network, with Industrial Exchange as its hub, consists of executives at middle-market industrial companies, vendors and solution providers to the industrial sector, private equity firms specializing in the sector and, especially, members of the Industrial Exchange Advisory Board

A network provides far more resources than any single participant. As a result, Industrial Exchange can be more effective than a solo provider in finding what you need.

OUR PROCESS

A community-wide, AI-powered process to meet your needs

Finding the right people and solutions requires more than sifting through proprietary databases. To meet your needs and conduct the most effective searches, Industrial Exchange employs a six-step process.

1. Needs Generation:We develop a description of the problem to be solved or the expert or solution you feel you need.
2. Needs Summarization:We describe your precise needs and parse them into search parameters using artificial intelligence tools to maximize effectiveness.
3. Needs Verification:You review the specification document, amend as needed, and confirm that the search criteria accurately reflect the characteristics of the person or solution sought.
4. Searching and Vetting:We search through the extensive Industrial Exchange database of experts and solution providers and then tap the resources of the entire Industrial Exchange ecosystem of private equity firms, operators and suppliers to identify the most appropriate candidates.
5. Expert Review:You review the results list and decide whether to proceed with a preliminary introduction to the expert or solution provider.
6. Compliance Review and Matching:After given a compliance review by Industrial Exchange, selected candidates meet with you to determine whether to proceed.
