HourlyNerd, recently launched by Harvard Business School students, gives businesses the opportunity to hire MBA students and graduates for short-term assignments. Companies list their projects on the site, and MBAs can then bid on the work. Fees range from $10 to $100 per hour. A florist in Boston used HourlyNerd for a website upgrade, for example, and an upscale retailer hired MBAs to complete a market analysis.
