While not only the European economies are still continue to struggle, the horizon for cloud working in an increasingly digitalized world is promising. twago, a Berlin based start-up completed its Series A with $ 3 million in funding last June and is now driving its expansion into other relevant markets. It today announces the market entry into France.
Gunnar Berning, CEO of twago, says: “France is an exciting and major market for twago. The country has such a big potential with approx. 10 percent of the working people in France being self-employed freelancers or agencies driving the French GDP every year. And the future is promising: A study for the US says that 30 out of 100 working people will work online as freelancer in the next couple of years, nine of ten companies will use the work of freelancers. We expect a similar development for the EU.”
Berning, a former manager with Siemens accompanying projects around the world, also adds: “With France being one of the most centralized countries in the world and a strong focus on the capital Paris, cloud working offers fantastic opportunities. Freelancers and agencies are able to work on projects with maximum flexibility: online, anytime and anywhere.”
