Addressing an apparent skills gap faced by the enterprises, BeGig, an AI-based marketplace, has announced the launch of an online marketplace that connects freelancers and businesses. BeGig had recently generated $1 million from marquee investors by the end of the 1st financial year through targeting 1500 gigs. The funds were then invested in the development of the newly launched online marketplace.
Transitioning from a side hustle to a primary source of income, gig working is an alternative to a full-time job. Today, it has evolved as a lifestyle choice adopted by millions of people around the world. To bolster this trend, BeGig, through its online marketplace, intends to assist both gig workers and companies in securing alternative work solutions that are faster, cheaper, and highly flexible.
Commenting on the launch, Shresth Shrivastav, Founder of BeGig, said, “The world is now increasingly adopting gig working, and ASSOCHAM already predicts India’s gig sector to rise to $455 billion by 2024. While the flexible profession has already existed, we want to take it to the next level by scaling BeGig to become the world's largest Tech Gig marketplace, connecting companies with dependable, experienced tech freelancers on one platform. We are confident that this marketplace will offer freelance workers and enterprises the perfect medium to connect and build a mutually beneficial relationship.”
Founded in 2021 by Shresth Shrivastav, BeGig comprises young engineers, entrepreneurs, and experienced freelancers who have a track record of delivering high-quality projects at reduced costs and with greater efficiency. The idea is to address the enterprise needs revolving around cutting-edge technologies such as AI, Machine Learning, blockchain, data & analytics, cloud computing and cyber security that will reshape the way organizations work in the future.
