Announcing Austin's first tech and digital freelancer meetup - find your next project partner and meet other freelancers.
We operate a little differently at Victory. While we have a core group of FTE employees, we rely extensively on a network of extremely talented and experienced freelancers to work on projects as they come in. This way we get the best and brightest talent, perfectly aligned to the scope.
There’s a few reasons for this. The principal two being that we don’t want to bring on team members when landing a client only to have to let them go if that client moves on; and that some of the best and brightest talent either has a day job they love or that they like being independent (#gigeconomy).
This means we spend a lot of time talking to freelancers and independent contractors - and something we hear a lot is the difficulty in finding other really quality, dependable people to bring in on projects. Establishing trust is important, and there’s no better way to do that than to meet in the real world.
We realized there isn’t a regular tech or digital freelancer networking event in Austin. At all. In fact, there was even a call for events in what’s arguably the biggest freelancer board locally, Austin Freelance Gigs.
So, in true Victory style, we decided to take things into our own hands.
We've launched a monthly meetup where freelancers in the tech and digital spaces can meet and find contacts in other areas besides what they offer.
If you’re a freelancer, join our meetup group.
We’d like to meet you, and you may just find your perfect project partner, too.
