Daniel Edwards
Daniel is a startup CEO, angel investor, advisor and board member spanning from London to Silicon Valley.
Strengths
says, "Vetting freelancers and providing career support for tech workers is a business whose time has come. Everybody needs a network, mentor, community and Arc aims to supply it."
says, "Weiting and team have built something great here! The traction speaks for itself here, profitable, matched 110,000+ pairs of developers from 205 countries, and 200,000+ sessions. ARC has cracked the remote work matching between companies and developers, which is a great start, but they have some much more room to increase this to cover other technical roles and potentially non-technical roles too. Excited to follow how they continue to scale and expand the product."
Advice
says, "Please become the verb for developers worldwide. Digital nomadry will only increase over time and being able to establish credibility and community virtually as well as digitally will be an important tool for both hiring managers and coders."
says, "I would say launch the non-developer part of your business sooner rather than later. Covid has provided a unique opportunity for ARC to lead this remote work space and competitors will enter the market. Continue to assert your dominates in the market by expanding the product line beyond developers. Even if you launch it as a beta, get it out and test it. At the same time continue to scale the developer side and I think it will all be synergist for you."

What Investors Say

Dave Lu, Managing Partner

Invested $136,000 this round
With the pandemic accelerating the adoption of remote work, more companies have accepted remote work as a viable option and will begin scaling their remote teams. Arc is creating a market network by bringing together the supply of hundreds and thousands of pre-vetted developers and reputation online with demand of companies looking to recruit and hire remote developers. By making it more seamless for companies to find contract or full-time developers through the network, they are attracting more and more demand from big corporate clients. Arc is more focused on long-term contractor and full-time employee positions instead of short-term gigs like many freelancer platforms out there. Arc has already aggregated over 750,000+ developers via Codementor and is primed for the oncoming demand for remote hiring.
