CSW Europe 2014 marked the official launch of Mobbr.com – the first and the only crowd payments platform in the world. Pilot version ran in the Netherlands earlier this year and now it has already reached UK, Singapore and Russia. And this is just the beginning.

“Platforms are the offices and factories of the future. People won’t earn money in offices, they will do it on platforms,” tells Ernesto Spruyt, Mobbr’s co-founder and chief of growth. And the first crowd payments platform gives immense opportunities for companies, experts and various platforms to merge, collaborate and gain profit on the one website with one click.

 

Forging a new payment system

If we learned how to outsource tasks, why can’t we first crowdfund and then crowdsource them? With this idea in mind, Mobbr developed a system in which tasks and payments for completion are distributed among the parties. Companies get their jobs done. Executors work on projects they are experts in. Collaboration platforms gain new tools and money flows. So why would you need to follow a linear model?

“Philosophy of this platform is to make a fair economy. Why do 70 people design a logo and only one eventually gets paid? We want to make a fair and equal payment system, ‘social salary’, which allows people to earn regarding their skills.” Through Mobbr, companies get access to professional workforce worldwide that has expertise in a particular field. There are no geographical constraints, as assignments can be in any language.

Taking off from CSW Europe, Ernesto Spruyt is heading to London, Dublin and Munich to introduce the breakthrough crowd payments platform. There is no need though to convince people to join in and collaborate. The Chief of Mobbr’s growth is convinced that it will happen anyway. In a matter of months or even weeks it won’t be unusual to hear “I’m going to Mobbr.com” instead of “I am going to the office today.”
