About Braintrust

In a world where corporations grow richer and richer by sharing less and less of the value their workers help to create, Braintrust is the first user-controlled talent networks that aligns the interests of both talent and enterprises. Braintrust’s unique network model allows talent to retain 100% of their market rate, while enabling organizations to pull together flexible teams of highly-skilled technical and design talent, no matter where they’re located. What’s more, with Braintrust, organizations can make their budgets go 2-3 times further by cutting out unnecessary, expensive middle men. This new business model of minimizing fees and enabling users to control the network is uniquely enabled by a blockchain token. 

Our core beliefs:

  • While talent is equally distributed around the world opportunity is not. 

  • The old models of how people work are dull, outdated and in urgent need of reinvention. 

  • People should be able to do the work they love, on their own terms, and keep 100% of the value.

Braintrust was founded by 2 successful serial entrepreneurs:  Adam Jackson, Gabriel Luna-Ostaseski and has raised $25M+ from leading Silicon Valley investors including IDEO, True Ventures and Homebrew. Braintrust currently serves large enterprises such as Nestle, Deloitte, PwC, Porsche, Blue Cross, Pacific Life, Coursera and many more.
