We started as HourlyNerd, an online marketplace for freelancers. Then our customers convinced us to think bigger. Some of the largest and most successful organizations in the world started using our software to not only find freelance talent, but to execute on their most important initiatives. So we invested in that vision.

Today, companies like Anheuser-Busch InBev, GE, Pfizer, and Unilever use the Catalant platform to be more agile by organizing and connecting their most important projects to the people and capabilities best suited to delivering results. We’ve grown over 100% every year we’ve been in business, and we’re just getting started.
