The DeepBench expert network was founded in 2017 by four MIT students and is headquartered in Boston. It closed shop in early 2024, a few years after all the founders had left the business.
The network helped connect their clients with experts from any industry, geography, or role.
They offered a regular expert network service (standard on-demand recruitment), as well as a DIY marketplace where clients could browse DeepBench’s existing network to connect with experts.
DeepBench took an early investment from Macquarie bank, helping it to promote its analysts to external clients.
In July 2020, DeepBench secured an undisclosed amount of funding through a strategic partnership with VisasQ, one of the leading expert networks in the Japanese market. DeepBench announced it was planning to use the new funding to expand its team and enter new markets.
