We help organisations hire talented local graduates to get affordable on-site digital services.
Growth is strong – 300 graduate signups, 80+ customers, and new partnerships to scale.
We’re targeting a £911m segment of the £26bn UK digital spend services market, and eventually the $5bn global graduate freelancer market.
More and more young freelancers are joining us, through a network of universities, charities and other partners. We aim to provide each freelancer with £2k of work per month, and our goal is to grow to 1000 freelancers next year. With 1m young jobseekers in the UK with £7bn+ of digital skills, there’s plenty of room to grow.
We take a 20% fee on every job (one-off, monthly and saas), and sales are growing every month. We are working towards a break-even point of Q1 2019, at which point we aim to be generating £2.8m in gross marketplace volume.
