What we do is exciting
Globally, freelancers and SMBs earn over $5T each year. On average, they must wait 90 days or more to receive payment for their work! Aside from predatory financing sources, such as payday lenders, freelancers and SMBs have few options. Qwil’s payments and liquidity platform provides a new option that allows freelancers and SMBs to get paid the minute their invoice is approved. With Qwil, Freelancers and SMBS have access to convenient and cost-effective financing, enabling them to grow their businesses.
Making a positive impact is embedded in our DNA
We believe building a sustainable highly profitable business requires acknowledgment of providing a material benefit to society as a whole. To cement this into our DNA we formed Qwil as a public benefit corporation and wrote the following words into Qwil’s corporate charter:
The “purpose of [Qwil] is to create a material positive impact on society, taken as a whole.”
This means we consider our stakeholders to be our employees, customers, investors as well as society as a whole. By enabling cost-effective and convenient access to financial services for freelancers and SMBs, we can enrich the lives of our customers, the companies they work for and the customers of those companies. Everyone in the Qwil tribe is driven to solve complex problems, that have a massive positive impact on the world and to do so with awesome people. This positive sum value chain is how we define success.
Our approach involves significant technical challenges
Delivering Qwil’s service requires novel technology across originating (discovery), underwriting (decision) and servicing (funding and collecting) to deliver financial services to freelancers and SMBs. Our approach requires modern predictive analytics, high-performance APIs, flexible and adaptable data ontologies and rules engines, comprehensive automated testing, and thoughtfully architected audit logs. We don't expect there will ever be a boring day!
