Temporary Staffing Platform Liveforce raises money to help rapidly develop its end-to-end management software for the gig economy.
Liveforce, a provider of promotional staffing software to help make managing your temporary staff a breeze, raises an undisclosed investment from Tech entrepreneur Andy Evans. The financing will be used on product development to bring Liveforce closer to its goal of becoming the World’s leading platform to manage temporary staff by developing its proprietary technology ensuring an end-to-end solution for businesses.
Greg Lusk, Founder of Liveforce said “This financing enables us to rapidly develop our products and to quickly deliver a complete end-to-end platform that the market is crying out for. Having already built and sold three businesses, Andy brings a wealth of experience in building SaaS companies, something that will undoubtedly help us on our road to success. Because of Andy’s previous successes and knowledge this partnership is the ideal result for our company mission and growth plans. We are excited to have Andy as part of the Liveforce team.”
“The gig economy is growing exceptionally fast with London’s gig economy alone growing by approximately 72% since 2010*, and is ripe for disruption through the delivery of a complete end-to-end solution. Liveforce offers a frictionless platform, which I believe will help to revolutionise the market ” said Andy Evans. “Both Mark and Greg are exceptionally driven and skilled individuals, who are highly driven to deliver this mission, so I´m very pleased to both invest but also become a member of the team as an advisor.” Evans added.
The UK is forecast to have 4 million people participating in the gig economy by 2020 which will require businesses to be able to effectively manage gig workers, proving the need for a platform such as Liveforce’s.
