Our Story

COMATCH is a curated marketplace for independent consultants and industry experts. Our mission is to reinvent the way organizations assemble the best expertise by combining innovative technology with personalized service. 

The company was founded in 2014 by former McKinsey consultants Christoph Hardt and Jan Schächtele.

After eight years in consulting, they decided that the time had come to venture into something new. The idea for COMATCH came when the two tried to work temporarily as independent consultants but realized that there wasn’t a platform designed to fit their needs.

Christoph and Jan soon discovered that many consultants were facing the same problem. Additionally, companies rarely thought of independents when seeking to hire a consultant, despite their specialized skill-set and competitive pricing. 

COMATCH was built as a solution to this problem. Today, it is the leading online marketplace for independent consultants in Europe—matching the world’s top professionals with organizations of all sizes and focus areas.

Now, we are embarking on the next chapter of our journey.

In March 2022, COMATCH was acquired by Malt, the leading marketplace for IT, data, design, and marketing experts in Europe. Jointly, we want to build a one-stop shop for organizations to find the best independent talent for their unique needs. At our core, we remain the same – a community with the vision of transforming the future of work and helping people pursue a work life that’s more than just a job.
