ATLANTA, Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Steady, the income optimization platform created for America’s rapidly growing independent workforce, won the Startup Pitch at Money20/20 in Las Vegas this week. Steady was one of 24 companies selected to compete in the Startup Pitch out of a total pool of 1,000 applicants. Startup Pitch is a popular component of the annual Money20/20 conference, which is attended by 11,000 leaders in banking, payments and FinTech.
Set to launch in the first quarter of 2018, Steady (www.steadyapp.com) is a one-of-a-kind platform that connects prospective workers with labor opportunities tailored to fit their qualifications, interests, geography and availability.
“Steady is an incredibly innovative company and the platform will only become more relevant as the independent workforce continues to grow,” said Chris Souther, Director of Content, Money20/20 USA. “Since we held our first pitch event in 2015, the companies that have presented at Money20/20 have gone on to raise significant amounts in funding and several have exited successfully.”
Steady provides opportunities ranging from on-demand work through the leading gig apps to part time and seasonal work at world class retail, restaurant and hospitality companies. Steady empowers its users to take control of their time and income, and avoid the stress of the earnings volatility that has long afflicted those in the independent workforce.
“The Georgia delegation of nearly 1,000 attendees at Money20/20 were cheering in force for Steady as they presented their final pitch on Tuesday,” said Metro Atlanta Chamber technology ecosystem director Grant Wainscott. “Atlanta is honored to be the home of Steady, and the FinTech Atlanta™ community couldn’t be prouder of what they are accomplishing in our ecosystem.”
