About Us

Our Story

“The idea for Kahuso came to us while we were working as freelance executives ourselves, helping companies grow. We saw how important it was for these companies to have access to experienced executives on a flexible basis, and at the same time, how there were so many senior executives trying to find employers with these exact needs. Surprisingly, there just wasn’t a good platform dedicated to connecting the two groups—so we created it!”
