Existing investors Axel Sven Springer, John Jahr and Oliver Heine led this round 18 March 2020 WorkGenius, the Germany-based all-in-one freelance hiring platform, recently announced the close of a successful €6.4 million funding round. This brings the firm's total raised to approximately €18.4 million. Existing investors Axel Sven Springer, John Jahr and Oliver Heine (member of Axel Springer’s advisory board) led this round. Freelancing is a global industry of around €3.69 trillion and more companies are creating processes to embrace freelancers into their workforce strategies. However, only 8% of companies have existing processes in place, according to Deloitte. WorkGenius , founded in 2012, provides a technology platform that allows companies to manage the process from end-to-end rather than utilising several solution providers. Its platform analyses more than 5 billion data points before matching the right freelancer to a project, and its enhanced collaboration tools allow companies and freelancers to work together more seamlessly, even on larger projects.
