Book interns by the hour, when you need them. Hand-off company tasks to capable UK students. So you can work on the important stuff.

UK Students (‘Taskers’ on the platform) can be booked for as a little as one hour to work on the stuff you don’t have time for, and businesses only pay when the work is done. For founders, we give them access to extra resource at the times they need it most, without needing to commit to a full-time hire. For students, we give them a way to earn money and build their experience.

Whether you need to kick off an enterprise, overcome a challenge, or rise to an opportunity, futuremap helps you to identify the required actions and avoid the pitfalls. As no two journeys are ever the same, we adapt to whatever your vision may be.
