Become a Gigster

A new approach to freelancer benefits.

Our ecosystem depends on our freelancers. They should share in the success of the platform they are helping to build.

Pledge

Freelancers should share in the success of the Gigster ecosystem.

Active freelancers in the Gigster network should share in the success of the projects they help build. We want to recognize their contributions to both client and platform success in a way that fairly aligns everyone.

How does Gigster Fund work?

Gigster Fund invests in top Gigster clients. The Fund is managed by AngelList Advisors, LLC, which has assigned Gigster a portion of its profit interest in the Fund in exchange for diligence services provided to AngelList. The Fund has already selected its investors and is not accepting new investors at this time.

Will Gigster Fund yield a successful return?

There’s no guarantee that Gigster Fund will produce any returns. Although some startup companies yield extraordinary financial returns, many fail.

Which freelancers may be eligible for Gigster Fund bonuses?

Gigsters may be eligible to receive discretionary bonuses if they are actively working on at least 1 project during the deployment period of the Fund.

What percentage of Fund returns may Gigsters earn?

Gigsters eligible to earn a bonus will generally receive an amount corresponding to their level of activity on the platform during the deployment period of the Fund, as determined by Gigster. For example, if there were 100 Gigsters on the platform during the deployment period of the Fund, each working on 1 project for 1 month, then each Gigster would be eligible to receive 1/100th of its returns. All bonuses are subject to the discretion of Gigster.

Will Gigsters own actual equity in Gigster Fund companies?

No. Gigsters do not own equity in Gigster Fund companies or hold any interest in the Gigster Fund itself. Direct equity ownership or indirect ownership has complex tax and legal implications.

How are bonuses paid out?

If Gigster receives returns from Gigster Fund, Gigster will determine whether to pay bonuses and will contact each freelancer receiving a bonus to coordinate payment. There is no guarantee Gigster will receive returns or allocate any discretionary bonuses.

Every month a selection committee at Gigster works with founding teams to learn more about their projects and provides AngelList with a short list of eligible companies. Some of these companies are then made an offer to join the fund.
