Bowsy helps students find Project Work at companies where this work is directly relevant to their field of study.  Companies benefit by having on-demand access to top talent to work on specialist projects.  This also enables companies to evaluate potential new recruits at very low cost, prior to offering them a job.  Companies therefore have access to a vast talent pool at a fraction of the cost they would have had previously.  Proprietary technology has been developed.  Bowsy has won multiple industry awards and is now on a high-growth trajectory.
