Israeli freelance marketplace Fiverr has announced the acquisition of Israeli startup Veed.me, a high-end video and animation marketplace featuring professional freelancers working with clients such as Facebook, Google and Slack. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Fiverr CEO Micha Kaufman said, "The Fiverr marketplace has always solved the biggest pain point freelancers have: getting clients and generating income. As it's evolved, we've recognized the growing demand from entrepreneurs for bigger and more complex projects that sometimes need highly professional freelancers with years of experience. Through Fiverr Pro, we're bringing professional freelancers an easy way to get work, while adding the high-end, trusted talent entrepreneurs struggle to tap into. Bringing a high quality, vertical player like Veed.me into the fold is yet another step in moving upmarket and creating the biggest horizontal freelance marketplace."
Founded in 2012 by CEO Yoav Hornung, Oren Hod and Nuriel Zuaretz, Veed.me has become a quality resource for connecting both large and small brands with a global community of over 3,500 professional videographers.
Hornung said, "Fiverr is a company we've always looked up to. We share a vision of providing high-end services through an accessible and collaborative marketplace, and when the opportunity arose to combine forces, we knew it was an ideal match for Veed.me's community of creatives and clients."
Fiverr has also launched introduced Fiverr Pro, which blends the efficiency and simplicity of Fiverr's one-click order, e-commerce marketplace with hand-picked, professional talent to meet the needs of every entrepreneur and small business.
