“I was really lucky after some research to find Guy and Alex. I mean, quite frankly, my build would not be where it is without them. They could not be more professional and I could not speak highly enough of them. They're going to be my partners for years to come.”

- Joshua Crandall, Founder and CEO

“Through Upwork, I got access to high-caliber talent on terms that fit. Without the opportunity to work with professionals like Dr. Kami Anderson on a part-time basis, we would not have been able to launch. Period.”

- Arvita Tripati, CEO
