We are committed to seeing people reach their maximum potential.
The high-end knowledge industry is currently inundated with outdated practices and inefficient market mechanisms that hinders individuals and firms from reaching their full potential.
We believe the market is ripe for disruption.
This has the effect of empowering greater value for both the buyer and the provider, while inspiring
others to lift themselves to achieve similar value.
Skillsapien.com is the online platform where such professionals can buy and sell slices of their time, worldwide.
Leveraging our offline networks, we operate an online rated-and-ranked capacity marketplace for high-end professional services.
Or, in simpler terms, we are the "Airbnb" + "Yelp" for consultants, lawyers, business advisors, interim executives and coaches.
We aim to make engaging and booking such professionals as easy as booking airline tickets.
Which in turn increases choice, utilization and value for both service buyers and sellers.
Being able to effectively utilize highly in-demand skills, toward the most rewarding clients or projects,
has always been one of the greatest challenges facing the global knowledge industry.
Demand and supply across the professional services markets (both freelancing and working as part of a firm) has always been very opaque and prone to regional distortions or one-sided manipulation. People traditionally have dealt with this through manual-intensive mediums such as agency / brokerages, high volume prospecting, time-consuming negotiations, sometimes even just on sheer gut-instinct.
The more in-demand a skill-set is, the greater this problem becomes; even more so for skills required across multiple geographies or markets.
