The evolution of work and how to grow your startup with freelancers

Companies have been allocating large budgets to agencies for decades. What they’re now realizing is that they can engage remote freelancers who they actually know and trust to work directly with them. The stigma around outsourcing is fading -- more companies are working with freelancers to achieve their business goals.

Working with freelancers allows companies to engage specialized talent on an as-needed basis. Engaging on-demand talent is especially helpful for startups who don't need to hire full time employees quite yet but have very specific work they need help accomplishing.
