HourlyNerd, a Boston-based online marketplace for freelance business professionals, said Wednesday it raised $7.8 million in Series B funding.
Investors in the latest funding round include: GE Ventures, Greylock Partners, Intuit founder Scott Cook, the Kraft Group, angel investor Semil Shah, former Etsy CEO Maria Thomas, Rent the Runway founder and CEO Jennifer Hyman and Cambridge venture firm Suffolk Equity Partners.
The money will be used to invest in product development.
„This financing serves as further proof that our disruptive model is working – delivering incredible freelance talent directly to businesses in a flexible, unbundled, technology-driven way. I’m particularly excited at the life we can provide for incredibly talented folks who for family or personal reasons prefer to work as independent freelancers,“ said co-CEO and co-founder Rob Biederman in a statement.
„We are increasingly seeing consulting firms both buying and selling projects on our site, as their demand and capacity fluctuate. HourlyNerd is becoming the global spot market for business talent.“
