4. Transformify: Workforce Management System ($60M/year)

Lilia Stoyanov (from London, UK) started Transformify: Workforce Management System over 7 years ago.

$5M / month
2 founders / 35 employees

Case Study

Started as an all-remote company back in 2015 when remote work was still seen as an exotic perk reserved for digital nomads, Transformify grew up exponentially over the years.

Speaking of budgets, due to Covid-19, budget controls have become more robust than ever before and the businesses no longer have the luxury to underutilize their teams. The share of contingent workers and international contractors working on a project basis is constantly increasing. An interesting study published by SAP Fieldglass reveals that 42% of the workforce spend is already going to external resources - international contractors, consultants, guest lecturers, freelancers, etc.

Case Study

Hi, I am Girish Kukreja, Founder and CEO at FlexC. I started FlexC about a year ago intending to disrupt the hiring space in India. We are a talent marketplace curated to help businesses hire and manage their hybrid workforce (permanent hire and flexible workforce).

With more organizations going hybrid, the ratio of hiring freelancers and contractors will increase to 20-30% of overall employees. And in this new age business era, FlexC aims to become the No.1 marketplace to help businesses smoothly transition during their journey.
