Mathew Ward

Mathew is the Co-Founder & CEO of Workmate (formerly called Helpster), Southeast Asia's first on demand staffing platform for blue collar manpower. Workmate provides businesses with instant access to thousands of pre screened and verified workers across the logistics, warehousing, hospitality, events, and retail industries.

Workmate's mission is to organise the informal workforce by connecting people to more opportunities, increasing their incomes, social protections, and ultimately their quality of life.

Workmate is headquartered in Singapore with offices in Thailand and Indonesia and serves over 300 enterprise customers with qualified manpower every day.

Workmate has raised US$11m since its founding in 2016 and is looking to use these funds to expand further in 2020.
