SideDolla is a service that launched in January 2015. It links businesses to experienced professionals who are looking to make extra money in their off hours. I.e., moonlighting. Beyond initial introductions of clients to experts, SideDolla offers a system of "Gut Checks" and weekly payments that attempt to make client work a possibility for millions of people. There is a growing shortage of workers in STEM fields. Solutions proposed by industry leaders revolve around education and legislation. Relief is years away, if ever. SideDolla adds a new possibility: more efficient use of the existing work force. Further, the talent that is out there can be undervalued (read underpaid) but stuck in their job for any number of reasons. Whether self-imposed or just stuck, these people are eager to find satisfaction in their work and money in their pocket.
