It’s not easy to turn an idea into a viable product, let alone a profitable business. While many entrepreneurs believe that securing funds will be the most challenging obstacle to overcome, many don’t realize that assembling a team that is invested in building your idea beyond monetary gain and is willing to share in your successes and failures can also prove to be difficult.

Loom is the first open network that enables entrepreneurs to connect with freelancers so that, together, they can build a business with mutual interest. For freelancers, the opportunity to build their portfolio with projects they believe in, coupled with the possibility of a meaningful financial win, is a welcomed change from one-off gigs, which can seem impersonal beyond financial compensation. For entrepreneurs, connecting with a partner who can help realize their vision for equity extends the runway of a fledgling business and increases the likelihood of its success.

Loom – build ideas with equity.
