Is Fast Growing Qwork The Answer To Your Business’ Manpower Needs?

Homegrown job solutions platform Qwork recently announced an investment from Artem Ventures that will power its growth into more industries that are prime to tap into the utilization of gig workers to help them better optimise their manpower.

Founded in 2017, Qwork has worked with over 100,000 gig workers serving clients in 11 countries in Southeast Asia, notably Zalora, Busybees Asia, Dynapack Asia, J&T Express, and Jakel, and has paid out over US$3 million to giggers, while helping saving up to 60% of operational costs for these businesses.

In 2023 alone, Qwork has connected more than 15,000 individuals with companies throughout the region who have clocked in close to 2 million working hours and spent over 280,000 hours working with partners worldwide to upskill its giggers.

On this episode of Open for Business, you will hear from Muna Munirah, CEO and Co-Founder of Qwork, about how these newly raised funds will be utilised, their plans for growth and how they will execute, and the origin story behind this startup.
