Risks and challenges
The team has worked hard to mitigate the risks and challenges for this project. To this date, it’s taken a number of strategic actions and sacrifices to ensure mission success. All the way through, we strive for a transparent and open process, towards any stakeholder we engage with, so that any potential risks and challenges - whether anticipated or unforeseen - are made clear. Below are a few reasons we think your pledge is safe with us.
We have a unique product and it’s ready for the market.
The prototype is up and running. The User App and the Pro Web App are nearly out of the oven. And… access is 2 months away. To be fair - limited ressources have meant it’s taken us more time than expected to get out of the lab. We’ve made it thanks to a team of talented and dedicated people: first, our irreplaceable designer “Paack", our tech partners "Imagine-App” and “StartupNest”, and of course our Early Backers, whose continuous feedback has been clutch to build a product that backs our ambitious vision: an App that cares…starting early January.
We attract a unique pool of talented professionals.
Our promise to independent workers is simple: technology that supports not just access to flexible work, but also the autonomy and recognition they need to achieve professional growth and personal empowerment. In agency and on-demand models where standardisation is the norm, and differentiation the exception, tier-one professionals often remain unnoticed, and their talent unrecognised, when they deserve to stand out. Guess where these top-qualified Professionals are heading to get back in the spotlight? Over a 100 have already jumped on board.
Our mission is greater than us and it’s on the agenda.
From the European Commission to Downing street and local unions, the message is clear: it’s time to rethink "gig work” and push for tougher protections as self-employed work forces and nontraditional work contracts proliferate, to avoid a race to the bottom in social standards in a group that now accounts for about a third of Europe’s work force. The Transport for London’s recent decision not to renew the Uber’s licence, and the vehement reactions to Taylor’s “faint” recommendations, are just another evidence that a simple facelift won’t do. Enough noise, now’s the time to take sides… and to care right back for the men and women that care after us.
