A new idea to match businesses with freelance creatives is planning to launch in the new year.

Pocket Creativ is a service that matches businesses with freelance creatives in a simple online platform and will launch in 2020.

BPE Solicitors’ Corporate Team has advised Pkt Creativ Ltd, trading as Pocket Creativ, on an initial seed fund to develop the business.

Regardless of the creative sector, be it film, photography, coding or design, Pocket Creativ will aim to ensure good freelance creatives from each industry are more accessible to businesses of all sizes. Through a unique set of algorithms, Pocket will matchbusinesses to creatives based on a multiple of different parameters.

The BPE team was led by Corporate Senior Associate, Adam Kean, with assistance from Louise Grzasko and Philippa Kean and supported by Chris Aldridge from BPE’s Employment Team and Dianne Devlin from the IT, Tech & Cyber Team.

Adam said: “We are delighted to have supported CEO, Oliver Bruce in securing this important initial investment into Pocket Creativ to help develop and bring to market this unique proposition.”

Oliver Bruce, CEO Pocket Creativ, said: “Working with Adam and the team at BPE was great.  For me, a solicitor firm with the infrastructure and ability to discuss internally and revert with an answer promptly is key. Adam and his team were excellent throughout the process.”

Pocket Creativ is currently undergoing the MVP (minimal viable product) build and is looking to launch in summer 2020
