Designers: the Freelance Nation !
Designers: the Freelance Nation !
Let me tell you about Creative Professionals Worldwide, a project that's gonna have a great positive impact on a world community of human beings : the Creatives ! Graphic designers, web designers, developers, photographers, illustrators, architects, writers, industrial designers, scenographers, textile designers, communication consultants, social media experts, etc...
How ? By providing them with work and revenus ! That project is about designing an innovative job marketplace for freelance creatives: www.creativeprofessionalsworldwide.com. A website to efficiently connect freelance creatives to companies looking for professionals to design their communication tools.
A job marketplace in line with a new world that's already in motion: the world of freelance workers...the "Freelance Nation" !
« A job marketplace for Freelancers ? Nothing new. »
True: job marketplaces for Freelancers are nothing new. Some of you may even use them.
However, after 8 years working in the creative industry, I'm not convinced by those job marketplaces some of which serve our industry's interests badly.
« So what ?» A win-win disruptive project !
The job marketplace I'm talking about is based upon a community of 1000 Members, Freelancers as well as other creative experts, from 75 nationalities and 45 countries. A virtual but also a real community : in Paris, Sydney, Copenhagen and other cities around the world, Members from Creative Professionals Worldwide do meet and broaden their professional network !
That job marketplace is innovative, efficient and fair. Have a look by yourself :
You see ? Through that job marketplace:
1. the creatives will get more revenues:
- as Freelancers contracted by companies for job assignments
- as operational creative experts financially rewarded to assess applicants for the companies: that's truly innovative !
2. the companies will save time and money: who's best than an operational professional to judge of the ability of a peer to complete a job for a client? That's even more innovative !
When you support my project, not only do you support an entrepreneur, or a female entrepreneur for the most "girl-power"-minded ;-) But you support the whole world community of creative professionals ! Can't you hear that community call for your support ? Listen more carefully...
When you support my project, you're helping the world job market. You create economic growth and value ! In a word, you're fighting against the world crisis: in your way, you're becoming a SUPER HEROE !
You need more proofs that project is going to be successful?
Do you know that this year, 90% of the US- and EU-based companies will hire a Freelancer ? And that 1 worker in 3 will be hired online ? THIS is the "Freelance Nation" !
Need more proofs? Then listen to the following testimonials by Jean-Michel Ledru, Head of EDHEC Young Entrepreneurs, a start-up company incubator Creative Professionals Worldwide will be supported by for the upcoming 3 years. Also listen to Fabrice Marmousez, a Partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, both of them being experts in company creation and development.
Our world needs creativity and design: support the creatives, support our project of building a job marketplace for the creative industry ! So, are you gonna be part of that new world?

Allocation of funds
The targeted 10 000€
Today, Creative Professionals Worldwide is a social network for the creative industry. It's a Community of 1 000 Members, Freelancers as well as other creative professionals, from 75 nationalities, based in 45 countries. A virtual but also a real Community : in Paris, Sydney, Copenhagen and various other cities around the world, our Members meet and broaden their professional network !
Today, Creative Professionals Worldwide is also a website : www.creativeprofessionalsworldwide.com. That website was built based upon an online platform that made it possible for me to create and manage a social network with the help of relevant community features.
However, those features are not fitted for a job marketplace. Objective of my crowdfunding campaign is to build my own website and offer our users the following features:
1. "job marketplace":
- Client Space where companies could follow their selection process properly
- Expert Space for a lean online voting process
- Automated application, voting and payment process
- Sophisticated Freelance profile page
- High standards of confidentiality levels
2. "social network", current features :
So far, I've managed to collect €10 000 from my relatives and myself. Another €10 000 are missing to start building the new website as of this summer and hire 3 freelance creatives: 1 web designer, 1 developer, 1 integrator.
Over €10 000 ?
Should I manage to raise over €10 000 through that crowdfunding campaign, we could develop more features like a bank escrow where the client company would make a desposit corresponding to the budget of the freelance job assignment; that way, the assignment would be secured for the creative.
We need you to make that venture happen :-)
