We have exciting news to share.

We are delighted to announce the closing of our Series A financing round. We have raised €7m in Series A funding led by growth investor Acton Capital with participation from strategic investor SEEK and renewed investment from Rocket Internet.

Our mission continues to be supporting freelance tech professionals in all stages of self-employment: from project acquisition and client management to continued professional development, peer-to-peer learning and administrative tasks. 

"We founded expertlead in order to bring together the best tech freelancers and to further promote their professional development through knowledge exchange and challenging projects. We work together with our highly skilled community to continuously optimise our qualification process for our newer members. For our corporate clients, we not only identify and technically evaluate the most suitable candidates or fully-fledged team that matches their projects’ needs but also take care of project administration. This enables our clients to fully focus on building and shipping products in the most time and cost effective way. Because we rely heavily on algorithm-based solutions for all our processes, we can work much faster and in a more precise manner than others." explains co-founder Alexander Schlomberg.  

Our newly raised capital will be used to support expertlead’s international growth ambitions as well as to further the automation of its products. 

Co-founder Arne Hosemann says on the successful financing round: "We are proud that in addition to Rocket Internet, we have two other well-known investors on board, Acton Capital Partners and SEEK, who will help us continue to grow and expand our community of experienced tech experts.”

Thanks to the entire expertlead team, to our whole freelancer community and last but not least to all our clients.

We can't wait to show you what else we have planned.
