"Capaciti will be the first enterprise-grade, decentralized project marketplace in the world. Its technology will fully complement the massive growth in digital freelancing, being driven by a convergence of connectivity, distributed skilled workers, a shift to output-oriented work, and the rise of “gig economy.”
“Our mandate at Victory Square is to invest in and partner with game-changing technology companies that are redefining the markets in which they operate,” said Victory Square’s CEO, Shafin Diamond Tejani. “Howyl’s existing global talent marketplace, combined with deep industry expertise and an exceptionally strong management and technical team, will bring Victory Square into another technology-driven vertical that will experience rapid growth over the next 10 years. The Howyl team has already demonstrated a successful track record of delivering projects using a distributed workforce model, with an alpha-version platform already being used internally to service existing client work.”
“Automation, digital platforms, and other innovations are changing the fundamental nature of work,” continued Shafin Diamond Tejani. “Howyl’s ‘Capaciti’ marketplace will allow for a frictionless work environment to enable the digital support of enterprise clients, and the pipeline of global talent that services those clients.”
The addressable market for Capaciti’s initial service offering is substantial. In the U.S. alone, the digital design market is estimated at $720bn/year, with 50% of that spend flowing to outsourced professionals (https://www.comptia.org/resources/it-industry-trends-analysis
Howyl’s 2018 focus will be to continue building its proprietary talent marketplace, while continuing to grow both its base of customers and suppliers. Howyl’s projected revenue is already on-track to exceed $3,000,000 in 2018.
“The Victory Square team is a leader in helping technology companies rapidly scale and expand into global markets, and as a result, they are the ideal partner for Howyl to facilitate our next stage of growth,” states Marc Low, CEO of Howyl Ventures Inc. “Our vision of building a decentralized project marketplace for the enterprise, which addresses the changing nature of work, requires alignment with a strategic partner that can help us build and deploy our platform around the globe. Victory Square is the ideal partner for us in this respect.”
In consultation with Victory Square portfolio company Blockchain Assembly Inc., Howyl will look to raise additional funds for the development and implementation of its blockchain-enabled platform by performing a token generation event. Victory Square is excited to expand its enterprise offerings and looks forward to building upon early success stories like Blockchain Technology Limited (BTL.V), the first publicly-traded blockchain company in Canada." https://microsmallcap.com/news/8653630802355135/?utm_source=Aimtell-DM&utm_medium=push&utm_campaign=Aimtell-DM_howyl_push-retarget_US_cmt_100511
