I have built cable-stayed bridges and high-rise parking garages. I have successfully re-built a derelict business unit in the US to grow beyond its former size (2006-2010). I have founded two successful European subsidiaries for an American multinational (2010-2013) despite how protectionist the target countries were.
However, the most amazing things I have built are the teams that brought these ventures to success. The teams that I put together to get these subsidiaries on the road were key: the right hire at the right time for the right position.
I met Marc during a networking event organized by the alumni association of my engineering school. He talked about the concept of Gofer with such a dynamism that I knew that it was a very good idea. I think he has something very powerful with this concept and has all the skills to make it successful.
As a former marketing director and an entrepreneur myself, I do recognize we often need short-term work. But because of the admin involved, you give up on seeking for professionals and instead end up doing with internal ressources, who don't necessarily have the time or required skills. I do think services like Gofer represent the near term future of the way we do business. The way they approach the issue (problem centric, mobile) is surely the right one. Gofer makes me think of services like Birdly or the famous ZenPayroll. Go guys !
Gofer SAS' vision is to offer a terrific way for entrepreneurs to focus on their business needs and to minimize risks related to employment issues. But not only...Gofer provides a great tool for talents to manage their engagements towards multiple employers.
Everyday new articles depict a society where the traditional relationship between an employer and a employee fades away, Gofer SAS'product enables this change.
The Founders have definitely the skillset and mindset to succeed.
I am glad to be supporting them.
