Weedle, a site that lets users find people who have specific skills and also pitch their own, has raised $4 million in funding. On Weedle, users create short profiles for free complete with their background, as well as the service they’re providing. They can also “vouch” for other members.
Weedle has its share of competitors, from sites like Freelance.com and iFreelance, where freelancers can advertise their services, to SkillWho, which lets people with specific talents connect.
The company is based in Ireland and says it will use the cash to expand the platform to the United States and elsewhere. The money comes from several Irish “business entrepreneurs,” as well as Irish government agency Enterprise Ireland. More in the announcement.
