introu is a talent marketplace that plugs into pre-existing networks and communities to facilitate the outsourcing requirements of internal operations and their clients by way of white labelled technology and API solutions. Talent marketplaces are costly to all users and expensive to run due to high marketing costs and little control. We transform this into a digital, end-to-end, on-demand experience for clients to book freelancers within their existing systems, be it websites, portals or apps using introu software and our network of freelancers. 

The business has grown quickly since our hard-launch of our BETA product in May 2021:

  • 15,000+ sign ups and 2,200 live users
  • Active operations in London and New York 
  • 198% average MOM  revenue increase during our Beta phase
  • Asset light, capital light, labour light model: £460k raised to date, £300k spent
  • Businesses using our marketplace include EasyJet (Europe’s largest airline), Eve Sleep and Gorillas
  • Partners licencing our technology include The Yard (USA), Venture X , Work.Life and more 

 

We’re looking to raise £550,000 of our £700,000 current fundraise to improve our technology and build our sales and marketing teams.
