Investment: Gigable

The EIIS Innovation Fund is delighted to announce that we have invested €600k into Gigable as part of a €1.26m seed round. The investment forms part of our EIIS Innovation Fund from 2022 and includes additional investment by new private investors in Gigable, including Great Stuff Ventures and members of the Spark CrowdFunding platform, as well as by existing investors such as Delta Partners VC and other private High Net Worth individuals.

Gigable is a platform that connects local freelance workers with local businesses. It is a differentiated model in the gig economy space with its focus on enabling a direct connection between small business and the local gig economy workforce. Their model enables workers to take shifts with multiple local businesses on a completely flexible basis, emphasising more transparency, stability and guaranteed rates of pay. For business owners, accessing a highly motivated and proactive local flexible workforce can be a powerful way to solve short and medium term staffing needs without the worry of constant recruitment and inconsistency in their staffing and service to their customer.

Speaking on the investment, John Ryan, founder of Gigable said, “I’m delighted to welcome The EIIS Innovation Fund to the family of investors in Gigable. All of our investors believe strongly in our mission to be a defining player and positive influence in the future of the local gig economy. The EIIS Innovation Fund recognise the powerful trend of self-motivated people of all ages favouring flexible freelance work over traditional employment, and how our model is the best way to capture and build on this trend in a way that works for both workers and small business owners alike.”

As part of this investment, Brendan Moran, Investment Director of The EIIS Innovation Fund will become an advisor to the company. Speaking on the announcement Brendan said, “The growth of the freelance gig economy across main labour markets in recent years is setting an irreversible trend, we are excited to support the Gigable team and its innovative platform to continue its growth across Ireland, the UK and enter into the US market”
