Gigged AI

Gigged.AI is running a campaign this month to fund digital projects which will help early-stage companies move their business forward.

Glasgow-based Gigged.AI was founded by its CEO Rich Wilson, a former senior executive with Gartner, and its Chief Technology Officer Craig Short. The company’s artificial intelligence (AI)-driven marketplaces transform the sourcing and on-boarding of tech talent for UK based companies. Since launching in July 2021 the platform has amassed over 3000 freelancers and 170 clients as well as winning a Scottish Edge and Tech Nation Star Award.

The number of tech vacancies in the UK is now 41% higher than pre-pandemic levels — and rising rapidly. Tech roles make up some 13% of all vacancies in the UK. And salaries are growing too: the average tech salary is now 50% higher than the average across all roles. All of this means that small and medium companies are struggling to hire the tech talent which makes growing even harder.

The campaign is targeted at Small to Medium sized companies that are struggling to hire tech talent, they will fund 4 projects which could include digital marketing (SEO, social media), website development, pitch deck creation, data analysis and much more.

When Gigged.AI launched, they had no permanent employees. All in all, they built an MVP and raised over $1M in funding without a single permanent employee. Now they have created a campaign to help companies do the same.

Rich Wilson, CEO added “We are passionate about the power of freelancers to grow your business. However, we know trying a different model is daunting at first. That is why we created this campaign to fund 4 projects in March and really kickstart digital projects. We will choose a winner each week from all gigs posted (which is free to do). We also pledge to plant a tree as part of our on-going partnership with Tree Nation.”
