We model the emergence of organization forms in simultaneous bidding for labor services among heterogeneous agents. What distin- guishes our approach from prior work is that occupational choice and job matching are determined simultaneously, so that the opportunity costs of entrepreneurs are accounted for.

The organization designs are e¢ cient and maximize complementarity between agents.
