Part-up has raised €650.000 in a new funding round. The startup, based in The Hague, serves as a marketplace for team members, looking to get a professional project done. It was not just any ol’ investment round, though. The investors are no shareholders as is usually the case. Instead they join as part of the to start a Part-up cooperative. This roadmap enables team members and later for users to become co-owners.
Workers connect with organizations
Part-up is based in The Hague, from where they have the ambition to enable workers to liberate them from ‘jobs’. Instead of working a fixed job, through Part-up they can participate in changing teams and new assignments. This works both ways, as it also enables organizations to find the right temporary employees to form the right team for the job. Or as co-founder Laurens Waling explains: “This structure ensures projects not only have a short lead time but creates an environment where employees are encouraged to work not through hierarchal assignment but instead driven by personal motivation.”
