I'm commercial director of UK based coworking network and freelancer union, 15 years’ experience of freelancer work. Experienced UX, UI, Web developer/designer, 20 years’ experience in multi-media design and development. Educator and programme writer - HND multimedia and entrepreneurship.
Foundee has been successfully BETA tested with several hundred user signups split between the U.S. and the U.K. It’s proved to be a highly effective tool for SEO and online visibility. Foundee users often appear ahead of linked-in during Google searches and in the top ten of google page 1.
As an individual I have run mixed workspace and coworking facilities for over 10 years. Met with, worked with, collaborated with and learned to understand the needs of a diverse and varied range of freelancers and contractors. Foundee employs all the good stuff we’ve learned from 10 years of social media, without all the annoying adds and ad-dons. Its clean, simple design ensures an ease of use that won’t add to the noise online.
Most importantly it works for the user, an extra pair of hands just when you need them.
