We're inspiring entrepreneurship by fostering economic independence.
SoleVenture is a different kind of tech startup. Co-founders, Eve Epstein and Robyn Rusignuolo, are accomplished, professional women who grew business lines in both corporations and the public sector.
How we work has changed, but how we gain income and benefits is stuck in the past. Our clients were professionals and small businesses struggling to grow with the high cost of health insurance and administrative burdens. Our clients were large companies and government entities supplementing their workforces with contractors and no way to offer them benefits. We grew tired of the status quo. We’ve taken our decades of industry experience to move us forward. Here is how we came together to build SoleVenture.
When I finished law school, the recession had a firm grip on our country. I, like so many Americans, was clinging to the idea that the only path to financial security was a job with a steady paycheck and health insurance.
From my years of practicing labor and employment law, I saw that the workforce changed. By 2028, more than half of the US workforce will be freelancing. Freelancers' greatest pain points are steady income and affordable healthcare. I thought, what if independent workers could band together to have the same financial security and benefits of a big company? This is where the idea of SoleVenture was born.
After working as a corporate attorney, I transitioned into HR and healthcare operations in 2012. Most recently, while serving as the Chief Operating Officer of a 30,000-employee professional employer organization (PEO), I delivered HR technology and back-office support to clients nationwide.
Over the past few years, it became apparent that the nature of work was changing quickly. More companies were hiring independent contractors, while more individuals wanted the freedom and flexibility that freelancing provides. Leveraging my experience with launching new business lines and designing HR solutions, I partnered with Eve to build SoleVenture and empower the rapidly growing freelance economy.
