THE FREELANCE ECONOMY
The market opportunity for Collective is significant and growing. Currently there are 5m freelancers in the UK, 11m in EU and 62m in USA. Every report and statistic predicts continued and significant growth, with many suggesting that by 2030 freelancers will make up the majority of the workforce in all three regions.
Initially operating in the UK with plans for international expansion, Collective will partner with forward thinking and responsible freelance platforms and communities who want to protect, reward and support their members, as well as offering membership directly to consumers.
“Collective are on a mission to create a social safety net for the freelance economy. Our vision hinges on our ability to re-invent protection, rewards and benefits for freelancers. We felt the Gateway was the perfect partner to help us build and test new forms of protection insurance products aimed at meeting the needs of our target consumer base. Their general advice as well as their ability to help us get regulated and underwritten in a significantly reduced time period made us feel there was no better place to launch Collective.”

“The rise of the freelance economy has become synonymous with the erosion of worker protections, underinsurance and a growing protection gap. The insurance industry faces a huge challenge to keep up. Simply, new ways of working require new ways of thinking about worker protection.
Like us, Collective believe that combining new technologies with innovative product design has the power to fundamentally change insurance for the better. A team of ex-freelancers themselves, with deep expertise across a range of fields inside and outside of insurance, we’re backing Collective to empower the freelance economy by providing workers with the protections they deserve.”
