Empowering Experts & Optimizing Businesses: Introducing Cansulta’s Raison d’être (Reason for Being)
Category: Cansulta, Small Business

In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people were looking for counsel on new business ideas, career pivots, and moving their enterprises online. Cansulta’s founder, Alex Kapelos-Peters, worked with a handful of small business clients as an independent consultant.  She noticed the same issue again and again: clients needed immediate executive-level help and often did not have the right expertise within their organization. Engaging agencies or large firms was often cost-prohibitive for smaller businesses or small projects, and while independent consultants were available, they struggled to remain profitable when taking on smaller jobs (due to time spent on proposals, contracts, invoicing, and collecting).

Alex was determined to find a solution to this seemingly never-ending problem, and with that came the birth of Cansulta. A platform that not only is more affordable than large consultancies but makes it easier for business leaders to connect online with knowledgeable independent consultants. In just a short period of time Cansulta has been able to expand its reach globally in many areas of specialization.

All the help you need, under one digital roof.

With Cansulta, anyone can sign up for free in seconds and start building their team of on-hand advisors at a fraction of the cost or delay of a big consultancy.

Cansulta makes finding an expert a breeze with our hands-free match-making, while also giving independent consultants an easy-to-use platform that handles the admin so they can focus on using their expertise to help clients.

With the help of AI, automation, virtual assistants, remote meeting software, and modern e-commerce technology. consultants can now work with businesses of every size, anywhere, at any time.

Tailored service, at a fraction of the cost.

Business leaders are able to save big by only having to pay for the services they need.

Vetted, A-level talent, one click away.

Cansulta has one of the strictest application processes out there. The 5-step application process means that every consultant on the platform has been through interviews, testing, reference checks, and evidence of expertise. You won’t find that level of vetting on other online freelance sites.

Anyone can message for free, book introductory meetings and figure out how the consultant can help.
