ELI5: What does Hestio do?

Hugh Mooney

Co-Founder @ Hestio

Inspired by the popular ELI5 format from Reddit we explain each of the Hestio offerings as simply as possible.

ELI5 (Explain Like I’m 5) is a term used in Reddit and other online communities to request an explanation of a topic or concept in a simplified, easy-to-understand manner.

The Hestio Portfolio

Our portfolio reflects the areas of demand for businesses that are solving modern challenges, such as access to technology, expertise, and talent.



On the basis that it’s very unlikely a 5 year old will be interested in Hestio’s offerings, let’s bring it back to something more relatable for potential customers.


How can Hestio help you?

Our mantra of “Codify Our Value” drives us to empower you, our customer, with the tools and knowledge to face modern global challenges with confidence. The Hestio team can work with your teams to build this expertise in-house, and Hestio’s worX Product leaves the tools we use in your teams hands to continue building on these good practices.

If we look at some of the major challenges to business today it’s easy to see where we can add value;

  1. CybersecurityWith cyber attacks becoming more frequent and sophisticated, businesses face a range of potential consequences, including loss of data, financial loss, and reputational damage. According to a report by Cybersecurity Ventures, the cost of cybercrime is projected to reach $10.5 trillion annually by 2025. Just pick up any newspaper on any given day of the week and you will find reports of organizational compromise.
  2. Supply Chain DisruptionsCyber attacks on supply chain partners can compromise the security and integrity of the supply chain, leading to disruptions and delays.
  3. ComplianceCompliance challenges are a major concern for businesses today, as regulations and standards are constantly evolving, becoming more complex, and impacting a wide range of industries. Non-compliance can result in significant financial penalties and legal consequences.
  4. Talent ShortageCompanies are facing challenges in attracting and retaining skilled talent, which can affect their ability to innovate and stay competitive. The competition for skilled talent is fierce, and organizations need to be able to attract and retain top talent to remain competitive.

Solve challenges, bring value

At Hestio, we focus on demonstrating value by helping to solve those challenges by bringing our technology (worX), our talent (Projects) and our experience (fleXpertise) into play;
