Crowd & Co

Reshaping the way professional services sectors connect, engage and collaborate. This is the #DigitalVillage.

Our Vision

Our aim is to equip you for the future economy.

Our technology enables professional services sectors, and/or segments within them, to create digital ecosystems for their constituents to aggregate and interact as they would in the traditional village marketplace. The village marketplace encompasses community: commerce, knowledge, recreation and nurture. The other great thing about a village is it connects to the village down the road. So we built the road as well.

Our Journey

The Beginning

In July 2016 we launched our MVP two-sided marketplace after 12 months of boostrap development.

Exploration and Early Adopters

Client engagement and feedback took us back to the ‘lab’ to create an enterprise centric solution.

A Network is born

With the message of engagement we are now building networked private marketplaces across all sectors.


We have created the foundation now we ask you to join us on the journey of creating #DigitalVillage.
