Minimal Web Design Customization Marketplace Tweaky Raises $460K
Tweaky is a marketplace website where you can have small portions of your website fixed for a minimal fee. The company has raised $460,000 in seed funding from Flippa.com and 99designs co-founders Mark Harbottle, Matt Mickiewicz, and the SitePoint Group. Originally known as Themepivot.com, Tweaky was started by Australians Ned Dwyer and Pete Murray. The two won a local edition of Startup Weekend in Melbourne this past November.
“Web site owners are fed up paying upwards of $150 an hour to a local web developer, or wading through quotes on freelance marketplaces for a better deal. Tweaky.com now provides web site owners with a compelling, cost effective alternative when it comes to customizing their web sites,” said Dwyer.
Tweaky allows website owners and publishers to have minor customizations done starting at $25 each. All tweaks have a 100% money-back guarantee. The tweaks are done by freelance web developers worldwide. Tweaky handpicked the freelancers themselves.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry.
