Berlin-based ‘cloud working’ community twago expands to France

twago, a Berlin-based startup in the ‘cloud working’ space, completed its Series A funding round with $3 million last June, and is now driving its expansion into other relevant markets like France.

twago is not only aiming to grow its business for clients, freelancers and agencies in France; the young company is also creating jobs in its international Berlin office. More than 10% of its team are already French employees,, with further growth expected.

twago lists jobs and projects from companies, as well as small- and medium-sized clients, on its leading platform globally. Since 2010, twago has successfully acquired projects and jobs equaling around €60 million. Clients have access to more than 168,000 freelancers and agencies from 177 countries; the company is already very successfully operating in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain and Italy.

Gunnar Berning, CEO of twago, said: “France is an exciting and major market for twago. The country has such a big potential with approx. 10% of the working people in France being self-employed freelancers or agencies driving the French GDP every year. And the future is promising: a study for the US says that 30 out of 100 working people will work online as freelancer in the next couple of years, nine of ten companies will use the work of freelancers. We expect a similar development for the EU.”
