The rise of remote working during the coronavirus outbreak

(New York, NY; March 2, 2020) TransparentBusiness Inc. announced today its third round of financing, inviting investors who seek crisis-benefitting opportunities to apply for a limited block of 5 million shares of its common stock.

The recession fears triggered by the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, declared by WHO as the Global Health Emergency, and the record-setting plummeting of major stock markets cause millions of investors to seek recession-resilient opportunities. TransparentBusiness executives argue that the Return on Investment for the third round investors may exceed 110,000% despite the global financial crisis. Such claims would be easy to dismiss as too-good-to-be-true, if not for the fact that TransparentBusiness investors include current and former executives of Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, J.P. Morgan, Stifel, Bank of America, Barclays Global Investors, UBS, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Trust Company of the West, Deutsche Bank, Telefonica, CA Technologies, Airbus and Accenture.

Designated by Citigroup as the Top People Management Solution, TransparentBusiness platform, is an ideal tool to facilitate work-from-home, essential for Continuity of Government and continuity of business operations in the affected areas. News media around the world has reported on the importance of  being prepared for a pandemic and TransparentBusiness is an essential element of Emergency Preparedness / Pandemic Response allowing businesses to remain productive, see

Apart from directly benefiting from the pandemic-caused shift to remote work, TransparentBusiness exhibits a unique combination of other recession-resilient features. “As our platform greatly reduces labor costs, it’s more urgently needed during economic downturns than times of irrational exuberance,” said Alex Konanykhin, CEO of TransparentBusiness. “Additionally, legislators in 33 states have introduced bills which seek to make transparent verification of billable hours mandatory for government contractors, and mandatory services may not be shed, unlike most other costs.”

In a video at, TransparentBusiness discusses additional factors of its recession resiliency, including the residual nature, stickiness and high-profit margin of its SaaS business model. Nonetheless, Andrew Winn, the Chief Investor Relations Officer of TransparentBusiness, stresses that all equity investments involve risks and that investors shall carefully examine and challenge the opinions expressed in its investment summary.
