The zelp story goes back to the start of the first wave of convergence between business and technology.
The team members worked with start-up businesses, acted as consultants, worked on big transformation programs, worked with governments and non profits and travelled the world.
The common theme that brought everyone together was the desire to build a better model to help companies and businesses put together people and technology, and just make the whole processes easier. .
