A great company starts with a clear vision (and a lot of heart).
Alex and Bradford here, Village's founders. We spent a combined 10+ years at Uber. It's pretty clear that some of the failings of the gig economy and other large-scale platforms stem from the way incentives are structures. The way we pay people and incentivize engagement needs to catch up to the way that work has changed.
The world sees work as black and white. You’re either hitched to the employment wagon with a salary, health insurance, and maybe even company stock, or you go it alone and get paid gig-to-gig. That hasn’t changed in 200 years.
Village is built to suit the way the world works today. We built Village to open up the incredible power and flexibility created by programmatic money, and automated ledgers, while being as plug-and-play and user-friendly as possible. It's revolutionary, and we can't wait for everyone to experience its magic. You can read more here.
