iContract, the online platform connecting contractors with recruiters, completed its equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs with more than £800,000 secured. As previously reported, iContract, which was launched in August 2017, connects contractors and recruiters for job matching and networking. The company reported that so far it has attracted more than 6,000 contractor users in the Finance, Tech and Legal sectors.
“iContract is a new online platform that serves both contractors and recruiters and hiring managers. It provides a more streamlined and accurate solution to job and candidate matching, as well as creating an interactive community for its user base to engage in, through direct chat, forums, offline events and third-party advice and support.”
iContract also explained contractors registered with the platform can search for live contracts tailored to their unique preferences and obtain more personalized results in their job hunting process; likewise, recruiters can search for and find the right contractor they’re specifically looking for based on their own individual settings.
The funds from the Seedrs round will be applied towards this vision, with plans to scale-up the iContract team and enhance the development of the online platform, as well as work on planned future features that will further elevate the platform’s offering. Amanda Cai, CEO of iContract, stated:
“We’re ecstatic to have successfully closed our latest round of investment and to have received strong commitment from strategic investors, who share our long-term vision of creating a globally scalable platform that helps change the way people work forever. We’ve also received investment and strong endorsement from our own user community. It’s inspiring to know that people using our platform are reflecting their belief and commitment in our vision with their investment.”
Cai then added:
“iContract has an exciting year ahead, and with this round of investment complete, the platform looks set to deliver on its promise of disrupting the contractor market in a positive and life-changing way. We thank all our investors and look forward to taking them with us on this next important phase of our development.”
