Susan Arete from Elance.com organized a great info session about the company last Friday at 3110 Lounge on Main Str in Santa Monica. She gave a short presentation on what Elance is about and why Elance loves startups!
She told about a myriad of services that are available through Elance for less than what brick and mortar businesses offer. See short presentation: Elance 5 min Preso
“Startups have always been lean by necessity. When budgets are slim or nonexistent and founders are bootstrapping their companies, it pays to keep costs under control. Many startup entrepreneurs are torn between wanting to hire quickly in order to scale up the business, while wanting to be cautious about keeping payroll in line with revenue.
Join us and learn how Elance offers an ideal middle ground, providing a world of talented freelancers ready to help do the heavy lifting of building your startup company. Hear first hand from a startup entrepreneur who uses Elance to gain a competitive advantage in business!”
Indeed, two startup founders shared their experience with attendees on how Elance helped them find freelances: service providers and talent.
Elance bought drinks and appetizers for all at the event. Even more – they give $50 credit to everyone who wants to try Elance out towards your first hire. Here’s the signup link to claim your $50: Elance credit towards your first hire: www.elance.com/join/susan
