Business Plan

PURPOSE
Develop and use technical skills to conduct research in the area of science which applies mathematical and scientific principles to the solution of practical problems for the benefit of society.

INITIAL FOCUS
As Big Rex volunteers we wish to explore e-commerce and gig economy opportunities and become proficient at new skills so that we can knowledgeably train people to make a primary or secondary living while we help Big Rex raise minimal funding to explore new technologies and opportunities to help others.

Use the first mile of job hiring to train and give STEM developers real life work experience to help them find their first professional jobs during the first two years of their career. Extend that first mile to help people with other skills.
