Korean startup Worksmate is trying to resolve problems for both construction companies and the workers through its construction workforce management platform ‘Gada’. The startup recently got its Pre-Series A investment from Korea Growth Finance and POSTECH Holdings Ltd.

The Gada mobile app mainly provides construction jobs for daily gig workers. Workers can go to work right in the morning without unnecessary waiting time by using the platform. The service connects construction contractors with daily gig workers, so helping them save time looking for workers. Gada services aim to resolve the wage liquidity problem in the construction sector’s daily labor market. The service was started in August 2020 and had soon received seed investment then.
