Championing the Interests of the App-Based Worker and
The Customers They Serve

Join us in transforming how platform workers earn and engage in the platform economy, while revolutionizing how platform consumers actively participate in this evolving landscape.

The Future of Work &
the Platform Economy

Over recent years, the future of work has emerged as a burning global issue. 

Undoubtedly, the forefront of recent conversations regarding the future of work largely revolves around the emergence of digital work/services platforms and the substantial transformation they’ve brought to the landscape of employment and the nature of work.

Digital work/services platforms empower consumers with affordable on-demand services while granting platform workers flexible opportunities to earn income, attain economic stability, gain autonomy over their schedules, and find fulfillment in their work. 

Yet, the prevailing business models embraced by numerous digital work/ service platforms, coupled with the varied experiences of platform workers in achieving their economic goals, have ignited fervent and persistent discussions regarding the merits and drawbacks of platform employment. 

Moreover, the regulation of platform work presents an ongoing quandary for policymakers, spanning both domestic and global spheres.

Failure to find solutions to ensure good platform work risks undermining the platform economy’s potential to grow responsibly and make an increasingly positive contribution in the lives of platform workers, consumers and the new economy.

At the heart of unlocking solutions lies the creation of technology-driven tools and methodologies that empower both platform workers and the consumers they serve.

At Gigafin, we’re passionate about the platform economy’s potential, but our true commitment lies in empowering both platform workers and the consumers they serve. 

Leveraging state-of-the-art technology, we strive to amplify platform workers’ influence over the nature of their work, opening doors to economic opportunities beyond the confines of the digital work/services platforms they work with. 

Simultaneously, we champion consumer autonomy, fostering diverse interactions between consumers and platform workers that yield optimal service outcomes and enriching experiences for consumers within the platform economy.


To emerge as a foremost and relied-upon provider of technology-driven tools and solutions that cater to both current and future needs of the platform economy workforce.


To serve as the catalyst for cultivating a robust online brand community centered around platform workers.

Our Vision


To equip platform customers with a deeply consumer-centric approach to fully embrace and reap the benefits of the platform economy.


To transform the platform economy from fostering ‘us-them’ dynamics to championing inclusive ‘we’ relationships.
