Why Kolabtree was founded
Scientific expertise largely been available to only the select few who could afford to access it. However, that is now changing, due to the gig economy.
Over the last few years, highly specialized experts have started to work as freelancers or as independent consultants. Nature reports that just in computer and mathematics, about 22% of workers are in non-traditional work arrangements. This is of great advantage to small businesses and organizations, who often need to consult experts on a one-off basis. Kolabtree aims to bridge this gap, offering a platform for freelance experts to list their services, and for businesses to easily access those services.
