Trifork, an international provider on NextGen IT-services and solutions, together with Vækstfonden and Crowberry, has invested a total of EUR 2 million in Feats, a new professional network based on project history rather than employment history, enabling Feats to expand the team and reach new markets.
Feats has reinvented the professional network from scratch and uses verified roles in projects rather than employment history as the organizing principle. This helps people to get recognized for their roles in past projects and makes it easy for companies and organizations to build new, strong teams for future projects by hiring employees, freelancers and agencies through the platform based on verified roles in projects.
“Feats takes an open source principle loved by developers and applies it to all members of product teams. Talented people want to be recognized for their contributions, and we want to recognize our employees for their achievements and contribution to innovation. Ultimately, we believe that this will make Trifork an even better place to work and further motivate people. We are pleased to invest in Feats along with Vækstfonden and Crowberry”said Jørn Larsen, CEO of Trifork Group
Feats has over 4’500 projects on the platform, representing an estimated 2’700 person-years of work by people in technical, creative, and business roles. Over 2’000 brands have projects in Feats.
Trifork will make the investment in Feats through Trifork Labs, which leads Trifork Group’s venture-financed R&D activities. Upon closing of the transaction, which is expected to take place in late January 2022, Trifork Labs will own 5% of Feats.
