Braintrust: a new model for how work gets done

Today, all organizations are being forced to act and innovate at the speed of tech companies and that means outsourcing big software initiatives more effectively. Unfortunately, the way that is done today involves hefty markups, little transparency and misaligned incentives with rent-seeking middlemen. We believe the future of building sophisticated tech involves leveraging elite, global teams that can be assembled quickly and transparently all with white glove service.
