Malt connects companies (from Fortune 500 to SMEs) with the best freelancers
Marc Fournier – Managing Partner: Malt is part of a major global shift in the labor market driven by millennials, who aspire to new ways of working and as a result offers companies greater flexibility in recruitment. Existing platforms tend to incite price wars between freelancers and IT service companies and offer no transparency to either clients or freelancers. Malt on the other hand puts the freelancer at the center of the equation, not only attracting the best and rarest profiles by offering opportunities adapted to their wishes and skills but creating a much-needed sense of community.

Their story began when Vincent Huguet, entrepreneur, met Jean-Baptiste Lemée and Hugo Lassiège, both senior freelance developers. Bolstered by their years of complementary experience, they decided to create Malt to simplify how freelancers and companies connect and collaborate.
Within a few years, it is predicted that 1 in every 2 workers will be freelance, and most of them by choice. Malt’s fast-growing community already brings together around 90% of freelancers in France. Companies today are looking for more and more freelance staff to work on specific projects and provide innovative input. Malt gives both companies and freelancers the best possible working environment.
The European market represents 9 million freelancers (in fields such as software development, graphic design, communication, consulting, etc.) and a potential 300 billion Euros. Malt matches supply and demand in what was traditionally a rather opaque industry. At Malt, they focus on people rather than on tasks to complete, which means that their community attracts the best freelancers. To be continued!
