One form.
Three platforms.

Three ways to get paid. 

All freelancers must fill out the survey below to be considered for IIC Connect & IIC Forward. All submissions will be automatically enrolled into IIC Bolt. 

What's the

IIC Connect is a  client subscription service that is completely free for BIPOC Market Research freelancers to join. 

Once you fill out your information below, clients will be able to search for and access your profile in our database based on the qualifications they are looking for. They will have the ability to contact you directly for new opportunities as they arise.


This service is only meant to connect clients with the freelance talent they are looking for- nothing more. 


Filling out the form:  

In addition to a mandatory headshot and link to your website or linkedin page, we invite freelancers to upload an introductory video of themselves for clients to get to know you. 

It is your responsibility to alert IIC if your freelancer status changes. 

At this time, freelancers are unable to edit their responses to this form.
Once you submit the form, it's set in stone.

To make revisions, you will need to go through the entire survey process all over again.
We will use only the most recent submission for your profile.

multiple submissions.
