Hyke is the first online back-office platform for the nearly 20 million solopreneurs working in the United States. We handle company formation, taxes, and bookkeeping. With our software and automation approach, we enable our members to increase their net income by $15K annually, on average. Our annual service cost is $2400, so we not only give our members peace of mind, but also make them money while doing it. We plan to continue to automate and improve our existing service, as well as add more ‘1-click services’ for our members, including benefits, 401k, banking, and more.
Hyke is founded by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. One of our founders sold a marketing automation platform with 15M customers to Oracle. Another founder has built 5 startups, and the other built a successful food-tech company that now employs over 150 people. We are passionate about helping the builders that need the most help: solopreneurs (designers, developers, marketers, and more) who are the backbone of the American economy.
Hyke has a massive opportunity to disrupt the future of work for one of the largest sectors of the working population. There are 15-20M full-time solopreneurs in the US, and an estimated 285MM more worldwide. The self-employed market is expected to grow tremendously over the coming years. In the US alone, the self-employed population is estimated to be 51% of the workforce by 2027. This represents a total addressable market of $95B+ that we can serve with an elegant, technology-driven solution.
