Founder and CEO of Arkansas-based technology startup FR8relay Aayush Thakur was recently accepted into the Forbes Business Council, the foremost growth and networking organization for successful business owners and leaders worldwide.
Thakur was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of his experience. Acceptance to the council is by invitation only, and criteria include a track record of successfully impacting business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors.
As a member of the council, Thakur has access to a variety of exclusive opportunities designed to help him reach peak professional influence. He will connect and collaborate with other respected local leaders in a private forum and at members-only events. Thakur will also be invited to share his expert insight in articles on Forbes.com and to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts.
“Humbled & privileged to be part of this awesome community,” Thakur said. “As a tech founder in the heartland, access to mentorship and advice on scaling startups is limited in the region, and access to folks within Forbes Councils who’ve done all this and more is invaluable.”
Thanks to Thakur’s membership, FR8relay will have exclusive access to vetted business service partners, membership-branded marketing collateral, and the support of the Forbes Councils member concierge team.
FR8relay is an Arkansas-based technology company working to improve the trucking logistics ecosystem. FR8relay is supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and the Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC).
