Doer: Building on Lynk’s Legacy, Pioneering the Future of the Gig Economy
“Failure actually creates greater resilience. You start to know how to block the punches.”
– Barrett Nash
The gig economy is a labyrinth. No stranger to this, Johannes Degn, co-founder of Lynk, a service marketplace based in Kenya, vividly captures this challenging reality, “If I had to give advice, I’d say do something else. This is really difficult.”
Yet, amid the intricacies of this fast-paced world, we at InfiniteUp see an unparalleled opportunity – one that fuels our aspiration to make a leap forward in the gig economy with our app, Doer.
A New Chapter Begins with Doer
InfiniteUp, at the cutting edge of global startup innovation, is set to transform the gig economy with Doer. This platform aims to address the challenges experienced by its predecessors, including Lynk. Doer is not just a blind replication of what was; it is an advanced evolution, learning from Lynk’s experiences to build a service more suited to today’s versatile gig market.
“The ability to get a service provider who will do what they say at a high quality level, pay the money, and be happy – that’s what the market wants.” – Johannes Degn
This is precisely what Doer aims to deliver. By focusing on matching users rather than undertaking service delivery, we aim to provide a tailored experience that caters to diverse job categories.
Beyond Young Founders
Startups often fall into the trap of lionizing the young, inexperienced founder. This approach can overlook the valuable wisdom that comes from seasoned professionals.
“The startup ecosystem focuses too much on young founders and not enough on the knowledge and skills that come with experience.” – Barrett Nash
InfiniteUp firmly believes in the power of blending the bold energy of youth with the guidance and insight of experienced leaders. It’s a harmony that brings diverse perspectives to the table and fosters innovation, resilience, and long-term success.
Learning from Lynk, Building for the Future
By learning from Lynk’s challenges, InfiniteUp seeks to take a more sophisticated and informed approach to the gig economy with Doer. We’re not shy about embracing Lynk’s struggles. Instead, we see them as invaluable lessons that can guide us on our journey, helping us avoid potential pitfalls and navigate towards a more sustainable and scalable business model.
“While the business model proved difficult to execute, I believe there’s still an opportunity for success with some changes.” – Johannes Degn
In conclusion, we at InfiniteUp are proud to stand on the shoulders of Lynk as we move forward with Doer. Our mission is to leverage cutting-edge technologies, rich insights, and a global perspective to pave a new path in the gig economy. We’re not just building a platform; we’re building a future where anyone, anywhere can find the work they need, and the work they love. The future is Doer, and we’re excited to write this next chapter of the gig economy.
