The IdeaLists Raises $1.7M For Creative Marketplace
The IdeaLists, a new startup which operates an online marketplace for creative talent, has raised $1.7M in a seed funding round. The funding came from Double M Capital, Pegasus Capital, Siemer Ventures, 500 Startups, Clark Landry, Paul Bricault, and others. The company, founded by Adam Glickman, said that the new funding is going to automate its processes, sales, and marketing.
The IdeaLists helps match professional, creative talent--including both individuals and agencies--with projects and clients, through its online marketplace. The service works by letting marketers plug in the details of the type of work and project they need, which they submit; they then receive a list of the top, matched talent for the work. They can then choose who they'd like to work with on a project. The startup says it currently has a community of over 5,000, vetted members, who must apply for access to its marketplace.More information »
