The investment, wich the marketplace for micro-jobs (Gigalo / Gigalocal) and the translation service (Toptranslation) just received from Heiko Hubertz and other business angels, is in the 6 digits. In relation to his investment Hubertz stated: “Hanse Ventures boasts a fast and professional implementation of ideas. Gigalocal is a good example for this and the team has really impressed me”.
Gigalo is a Fiverr-type-of-service wich was founded in the beginning of 2011. It operates a plattform for 5 EUR microworking and supports the languages Spanish and German. The startup just launched the alpha-version of a new app called Gigalocal.
The online translation agency Toptranslation was founded at the end of 2009. Hubertz said in relation to Toptranslation: “As CEO of an international company like Bigpoint I experience every day first-hand how important high-quality translations are. Therefore, I see high potential for Toptranslation in the business-to-business segment”.
