Startup of the Week - Skillotrade

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

SkillotradeAs we all know, many startups operate on what is pretty much a shoestring budget - particularly in the early days.

The lack of financial resources can therefore have a detrimental impact on certain business functions and tasks. Whilst in in an ideal world, one would simply hire a new member of staff, that’s unfortunately not possible when the cash flow is somewhat limited. That however need no longer be the case, thanks to our latest Startup of the Week.

Skillotrade is an online platform where users can trade skills with each other.

Here’s how it works:

Firstly sign up to the platform and list the particular skills that you would need to avail of - skills that will enable you to get a certain job or project done. You can also highlight the particular skills that you can offer in return.


Then it’s simply a matter of liaising and connecting with the other traders who have responded to your listing and agreeing a trade.

No cash needs to change hands - instead it’s all about exchanging skills.

The Skillotrade platform is perfect for startups and freelancers alike and as with all platforms like this, the more its membership grows, the more valuable an asset it will become for the startup community.

We love what these guys are about and we reckon you will too.

Check out the short video below which will give you a little further insight…
