The Past and Future of Freelance Marketplaces

If you walk into the offices of Tracy Lawrence’s Chewse, you’re going to get hugged. This is just one of the takeaways from a panel called “The Evolution of Freelance Marketplaces,” held at The University Club in San Francisco on Thursday, May 12, 2016.

Scripted CEO Curtis Kroeker moderated a discussion with three panelists. Matt Faustman is the CEO and co founder of UpCounsel, which connects lawyers with companies that need on-demand legal services. Lawrence is CEO and co-founder of the office meal provider Chewse. Tristan Pollock co-founded Storefront, which connected creative people with unused retail spaces in their cities as well as venture partner and Entrepreneur in Residence at 500 Startups.
