Raise ideas, not funds, on Loom.

How Loom Works

Our goal is to provide meaningful connections
between freelancers and entrepreneurs
who want to trade cash and equity for work.

We're all about bringing great ideas to life.

Post your project

Create a profile for yourself or your company and tell the community about the project you are bringing to life. Describe the basics of the project on your public page and keep your confidential details hidden behind an NDA-protected tab.

Receive freelancer bids

Developers from around the world will place bids in equity and/or cash to work on your project. When a freelancer places a bid on your project, it creates a messaging thread to discuss the details of your project.

Engage top freelancers
