The blockchain startup heymate has appointed a new board member and two strategic advisors who also invested in the company. The new team will support heymate in the next stage of growth and in bringing the gig-economy micro-entrepreneurs the flexibility they want while securing their revenue.

The heymate mobile application solution enables micro-entrepreneurs in the gig-economy to simplify and formalize deal terms and conditions, manage escrow payment and resolving disputes, all while offering an ecosystem of services such as getting short-term and on-demand insurance or micro-loans, to support the entrepreneurs as they grow. For workers, the heymate platform allows them to create, negotiate and settle offer-for-work contracts in under 20 seconds on any non-transactional marketplace.

In preparation for the next stages of development, heymate has appointed Matteo Maccio as the new board member. Maccio is the Chief Financial Officer and Executive Committee member of Falcon Private Bank, a leading Swiss wealth manager and the first private bank in Switzerland to provide institutional crypto-asset management solutions. Besides being an experienced angel investor, Matteo has held various senior management positions at several Swiss banks, such as CFO, Chief Risk Officer, and Chief Accountant.

“I admire Maccio’s deep understanding of accounting, tax and capital market rules – a significant value-add to the corporate governance of a Swiss AG with significant growth ambitions,” said heymate’s CEO and founder Philipp Toth while welcoming Maccio.

Alain Kunz and Saeed Gouda also joined the company as strategic advisors who invested in the startup. Together the new team will help guide heymate through its public launch, provide connections with their wide and diverse equity investor networks and support the scalability of the platform as it reaches a global audience over the next two years.

“We needed intellectual firepower that would help us in tech-ops, business scaling, international go-to-market initiatives, and corporate governance,” said Toth.

“Gouda’s tremendous company building experience and global network in the digital marketplace sector will be highly instrumental to heymate’s growth,” Toth said.
