About Company: Founded in 2018 by Andri Studer, Cédric Baumgartner, and Manuel Inauen, Kollabo helps skilled blue-collar workers find the “perfect match” while making the search process easy. Since 2019, Kollabo has been digitalizing and simplifying the job search process for construction workers, with plans for adding other job categories later on. To do this, the startup is building a market network for workers, employment agencies, and construction companies that efficiently connects all parties. Professionals can create their profiles on the platform, similar to LinkedIn, allowing them to build long-term relationships with employers and provide proof of their expertise through a rating system. With a network of over 100 temporary offices and construction companies, clients can receive a suitable job offer within 1 – 2 days. The company aims to close the gap between job seekers and temporary offices. It refers job seekers to ‘trustworthy’ and competent temporary offices in the region free of charge.
