Richard Morris

CEO at TheGivingMachine

Go2Ex are not limited to small ideas and small scope. With diverse experience and backgrounds from corporate to self-employed, the team were able to identify my needs and pair me with two members best suited. They opened up some new ideas that I have taken forward which are transforming my business.
