TOPTAL Very interesting projects: I worked with a corporate venture capital fund that was looking to invest in a robotics startup, among other projects with startups, small businesses, consulting firms, investment banks, and private equity firms
GO CATALANT I never got a project through here. It’s very competitive, with a lot of consulting firms bidding on these projects. I think this model is a waste of time for individual freelancers and even for companies posting projects, because GoCatalant doesn’t seem to have a real filter of who applies and who enters the platform.
UPWORK well, this platform is saturated with a lot of freelancers from all over the world. If you are willing to compete on price against people living in countries considered “low cost”. I believe Upwork doesn’t even accept more applicants. If you are a company, be ready to screen thousands of applicants, resulting in wasted time.
STARTEGIC PROJECT : great to work with. Interesting projects. I think it’s not a fit if you are a startup or small business because its price is set to cater to large enterprises
