Welcome Aventeer as a sponsor of Boulder Startup Week! Great sponsors like Aventeer helps us to keep Boulder Startup Week a free celebration open to all. Which of the 200+ BSW2016 events have you enjoyed the most?
Aventeer is a marketplace that connects local freelancers and independent contractors with companies that need to get work done.
They announced this week the launch of their open and free access to hundreds of thousands of profiles to help companies find and evaluate candidates based on skills, ranking and links to their social profiles.
Users can search freelancer profiles created by Aventeer members that include rate, availability, personality, sample work and more. Currently Aventeer has over 65 million people indexed in the U.S. and has identified and ranked over 300,000 Coloradobased technologists. Shortlisting features allow users to organize and group candidates, making the process to find the right talent even easier.
“We are committed to maximizing value for both local freelancers and the companies that need their skill,” said Aventeer CEO Josh Swihart, “allowing everyone to freely search and find local talent is a first step toward that objective.”
In addition to offering a free and open platform for finding candidates, Aventeer provides transparent, feebased services including booking candidates through the platform and concierge services for shortlisting, scheduling interviews, screening candidates and managing projects.
Their main drive is to elevate the freelance community by helping them get paid what they’re worth and do more of the work they love, and that just fits in so well with the spirit of BSW2016.
Thanks Aventeer for sponsoring BSW2016!
