Nine months ago we launched Tweaky.com as the marketplace to anyone improve their website. It’s hard for small businesses to get small changes made to their website. Agencies and freelancers typically don’t want to touch jobs less than $500-$1000. The overheads are too high. I know because I ran an agency for a couple of years.
I was on a panel last night at Lean Startup Melbourne talking about different ways you can raise capital for your business. The panel featured a venture capitalist, an entrepreneur who had raised VC capital, a government grants consultant and myself talking about my experience raising capital for Tweaky.com from local angel investors.
Tweaky closed a $450K funding round from a couple of the best in the business Mark Harbottle [99designs] and Leni Mayo [Learnable] – experts in building high growth online marketplaces for outsourced projects, these two guys are going to help take Tweaky to a level that I don’t think we can quite imagine just yet.
