The Expert Networks

Catalant Expert Network

About the Network - Catalant Expert Network is a technology platform that connects businesses with experts. Founded in 2013, Catalant was originally known as Hourly Nerd and focused on small and medium sized business and recent graduates from top 40 business. In 2016, the platform was rebranded under the name Catalant and operates services that focus primarily on enterprise-sized clients and more senior, full-time consultants.


Consultant Profile - Catalant serves independent consultants, business experts, boutique firms and other teams. Catalant reviews all complete profiles and grants immediate bidding access to users whose backgrounds and expertise align with their clients’ needs.


How It Works - Clients post projects on their platform, detailing their project needs, desired expert qualifications, and estimated timeline and budget for services. Experts browse Catalant for active project postings and bid on projects they are interested in and well-suited to execute.

Clients review bids received and select experts to hire for the project.


In addition to experts discovering projects on their own, Catalant’s proprietary matching algorithm works to match experts with projects based on their profiles. When there is a match between a project and expert, the expert will receive an invitation to place a bid for the project through the Catalant platform
