A NYC based startup called Wethos is tackling the market of marketing freelancers. According to an article in TechCrunch;
Wethos was founded in 2016 during the height of the presidential election. The three cofounders were working at a large ad agency in NYC and found themselves wanting to get involved in causes they care about. Realizing that non-profit employees are often overworked and under-resourced, and seeing that the vast majority of young people want to use their professional skills for good, Wethos was born.
The platform itself is not altogether revolutionary. In fact, there are plenty of networks that connect freelancers, as well as full-time job seekers, with positions at companies. But Wethos is one of the only platforms that focuses on matching freelancers not only with a side job, with with the causes they care most about.
Within the first six months of launching, Wethos attracted more than 1,000 freelancers.TechCrunch
They did a Q&A in Alleywtach: “Wethos has built an agile marketplace that allows nonprofits and mission-driven brands to engage creative marketing specialists. There are over vetted 4,000 specialists in the Wethos network that can help with a range of functions including executing digital strategy, content creation, website development, brand strategy, and more.”
