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 personal 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 soon 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.
