50,000 new entrepreneurs in six months is a strong promise for Freelancer in Italy, however credible in the light of the results achieved by the platform in many other countries around the world. Obviously, it is not new captains of industry that we are talking about, at least for the moment, but mostly of professionals who find new jobs and opportunities to increase their income, even if they often go further. In the hope that confusion and precariousness will not increase, which frankly there is no other need.
Freelancer.com, the world's largest outsourcing and crowdsourcing dedicated to the meeting between supply and demand for independent work, is not an absolute novelty for Italy since it already has numerous registrations from our country (21,000 professionals and approximately 4,500 companies). The new fact is the launch in mid-November of the Italian version of the site, with a press announcement that speaks of 50,000 new entrepreneurs per month.
What about Australians of Freelancer? Welcome to Italy! In a moment of profound crisis of the Italian economic system, with unemployment reaching 10.8% in September and over 35% among young people under 25, the new opportunities are like rain after drought, or at least hopefully.
