A Future Equity Agreement (SAFE) gives you the right to future shares in the company. If you invest, you're betting the company will be worth more than $4M eventually.
We've been freelancers. We've hired them. So, we get this problem first-hand.
There are millions of freelancers out there on a path to burnout.
👋 That's where we come in...
We're working on ways to embed and integrate with other portfolios and websites to make this as stackable as a calendar link. See Connor's Greeting Link as an example!
The discovery process can get messy & this is most often the time when freelance creatives/designers do a lot of (free) work just to end up not knowing if the client will book. Our tool is designed to make that process painless while leading the client to that final commitment. Bookable scopes of work pull info from the discovery process and make it easy to customize a bookable scope of work. No more stale contracts. This is a scope of work that works. A scope of work that changes with the changing tides of the project (because the tides do always change). Less awkward 🥴 scope creep situations.
Our special sauce? We're applying the booking model (yes, like in the travel industry) to the freelance sales process. A super sophisticated, authentic, value-driven approach to setting up projects between freelance designers and their clients.
+ We're a low-cost replacement for the hodge-podge freelance tools out there
+ We're focused on the sales process exclusively for creatives
+ Building a community around the process of getting booked as a freelancer
+ We're not (and never will be) a saturated marketplace or a stale invoicing tool.
We're currently in beta (fluctuate between private & public). Even still, in our MVP stage, we were able to generate some solid traction and revenue.
As we prepare to launch, the plan for growth is to focus on two go-to-market strategies: content & partnerships with influencers in our space.
Support from our community, friends, and awesome angel network is the key to getting us going faster!
