Horsepower

About

Horsepower is a cloud-based SaaS platform of Human Resource benefits, presented by flexi-bend product tier and managed by a single web and mobile app dashboard.

We consolidate personal and government bills payment, Healthcare and Insurance, Business tools, Co-working spaces, General tax and legal support, access to SME financing, Virtual assistants, Retail rewards and membership referral rewards and more.

The Horsepower story started from the pressing need of freelancers to conveniently pay for their Social Security, government postings and provide healthcare for themselves and their family. These are basic benefits that are stripped from corporate employees turned solo entrepreneurs says Jojy. Diego was involved in Technical Recruiting and Executive Search, mostly for foreign Startups setting up a office in Manila. Working with candidates from large companies to a startup company without details of clear healthcare benefit was a tough experience.

One afternoon, we both sat down finding innovative solutions to solve this problem. Diego recalled that although HMO and Healthcare Plans started in early 80’s, even until today, the Philippines, and neighboring developing countries are still generally an out-of-pocket means for healthcare. Access to affordable and comprehensive healthcare is limited to companies holding large number of employees.

Bootstrapping, we made attempts speaking to large companies for a seamless access to healthcare and payment portals through technology. “We had our share being ignored by these companies”. It was not easy for them to understand a potential partnership value of a technology platform that will remove the tedious processing.

Our search for another Co-Founder took us months. One evening, we got introduced to Hannah by a good friend. Her track record of building a network of offline freelancers from 16,000 to 1M in 3 years while providing healthcare benefits as a retention program made us decide that she is the perfect candidate we are looking for.

Together, we reconnected with our former business and industry contacts that can possibly take our idea forward. One opportunity lead to another until we completed the details needed to take us to MVP.

We did not plan to build a health or bills payment app. We all shared the vision of providing a complete solution for solo and Micro Entrepreneurs that will provide security and protection, and most, feel the creative freedom to run their business.

We want to share our philosophy to all entrepreneurs, whether just starting out, or in the stage of growing their business, that they deserve a simple, intelligent, affordable and transparent access to all these Human Resource products and services.

Joined by a talented team, together we made the commitment to deliver that promise.
