According to Fast Company, a new startup called Assignmint is going to create an online go-between for freelancers and employers, starting with writers and editors. Says Fast Company:
The company, headed by formerNew York Press and Forbes Traveler editor Jeff Koyen, will offer a complete pitch-to-payment cloud workflow system for freelancers and their employers. It helps digitally manage work assignments, editorial calendars, invoices, pitches, expenses, contract information, and payment. Freelance journalists, meanwhile, will be able to have access to all their outstanding invoice and payment information in one place. The startup also plans to implement a clip and algorithm service to match freelancers with potential new clients.
Assignmint has a private beta scheduled for June; you can sign up at their website assignment.com.
