|Seed, 1/2010 ||$20k|
ExpertBids allows entrepreneurs and businesses to get personalized bids on any legal, accounting or consulting need they may have.
Clients (anyone who needs a professional service provider) can anonymously post their need, including the location and description (a “Service Request”). The posting can then be viewed by applicable, pre-screened, lawyers, accountants or consultants (“Experts”). If interested, the Experts can send the Client either a flat fee or hourly price quote and a description. The Client can then view this along with the Expert’s profile, rating and past client reviews. The Expert’s profile includes their license information, educational background, location, websites, and other information about the Expert. Based on this information, the Client can decide to whether to work with any of the Experts, get more information from any Expert, or do nothing - there are no obligations.
