Flinja is the Uber for Work. Initially targeting the college demographic, Flinja has a marketplace of over 100,000 students and alumni who have been vetted by school and area of expertise. Businesses come to Flinja to hyper target students to hire for a variety of projects. Flinja matches real time demand with real time supply.
On Flinja, both students and alumni can post a service, write and read reviews on each other, and create a work profile for the world to see.
Flinja has won several accolades including Best Social Product at Demo Fall 2012, Top 5 Startups to Watch by GigaOm, LeWeb Paris 2013 Top 3 Finalist, and was recently a SXSW Edu 2013 Finalist.
53% of recent college grads are finding themselves under or unemployed, yet there are millions of jobs left unfilled. Flinja solves this by providing a platform where students can gain skills and build relevant work experience completing projects while in school. It allows startups and large companies alike to quickly test out the talent of tomorrow at a fraction of the cost.
