Brainville and Places initiate partnership

Pressmeddelande   •   Jan 16, 2020 10:44 CET

Brainville, the Nordic region’s leading consultancy marketplace, and Places, the Stockholm based startup on a mission to change the coworking industry, today announce a strategic partnership. Together, the parties aim to further improve working conditions for business owners, consultants and freelancers.

“The gigeconomy keeps on growing and during 2019 the amount of independent business owners and freelance consultants registered at Brainville increased. Yet, these target groups are still often seen and treated as a temporary trend, rather than living proof of the behavioural shift our labour market currently is experiencing. Places provides an excellent solution to the location struggle that most business owners probably recognize, and as a bonus also with a sustainable business model. I’m delighted to announce this partnership and look forward to see how we can further develop our collaboration in ways that brings value to business owners and entrepreneurs”, said Manuel de Verdier, CEO and co-founder of Brainville.

Places transforms under-utilized city space into a network of playful coworking, creating a tribe-like community of creatives and startups. Its clients consist of both freelancers in need of an office for the day as well as companies wanting to change their working environment. Brainville offers a unique platform and marketplace, targeting both freelancing consultants and consultant buyers in the Nordic countries. Thousands of vacant consulting positions are published monthly at Brainville, and once there’s a professional match between a freelancer and consultant buyer, the parties can then conduct business directly with each other through Brainville.

Initially, the partnership between Brainville and Places will bring useful benefits to both Brainville’s and Places’ customers, such as reduced prices on the other party’s business services. When applicable, joint efforts within marketing and communications, for example local customer events and meetups, will also occur.

“We’re bored of classic office tables and white walls. At Places we believe that while work of course can’t all be play, everyone needs to get out of their everyday office from time to time. Be it through event hosting or as an alternative workplace, we offer ways for both companies and freelancers to spice up their nine to five. Brainville is a great match for us, as they are solving another common freelance issue, e.g. easily finding consulting gigs instead of spending endless hours on search and finding clients. I’m excited to see what kind of ideas we might come up with together going forward”, said Robin Hamrén, co-founder of Places.

Previously, Brainville has also announced partnerships with Nordnet and Wint.
