Freelance work makes up nearly 5% of U.S. GDP with 2018 revenue totaling $1.3 trillion. 28.5 million people - half of the freelance workforce - say that freelancing is their long-term work plan. SoleVenture addresses the critical needs of this rapidly growing segment of the workforce. The SoleVenture platform will provide freelancers with the infrastructure they need to build and grow their businesses including entity formation assistance; billing and invoicing support; access to business insurances and the personal benefits of traditional employment, including health, dental, vision, and limited medical plans; and retirement and savings accounts. SoleVenture is the back office support for the solopreneur.
