Entrepreneurship is on the rise in India. In the recent years start-ups like flipkart, snapdeal and zomato have created a global impact in the e-commerce sector and are beginning to revolutionise the Indian online market and economy. With the digital and online media beaming with opportunities, more and more people are moving towards the rising trend of self-employment. Among these numerous new ventures, some are worthy of note due to their potential and growth rate. One such noteworthy venture is Truelancer.
Truelancer was formed with the basic view of creating an online community where freelancers and employers
from India and all across the globe would come together and work. The idea is to promote freelancing in India as an opportunity for talented people to do what they like as well as build a thorough professional career through networking and promoting their work. Also, it encourages employers to look beyond the corporate workspace and outsource jobs helping them save time and energy and supplying them with quality work. This concept of freelance networks is still in its nascent stages world-wide and there could not have been a more correct time to create an India-based platform as the country seems bullish on economic revival and development with the recent changes in the political atmosphere.
Officially formed in June 2014, the company has risen fast. Currently it is host to over 35000 freelancers and employers and has recorded transactions amounting to Rs 5 Lacs. The stats become more impressive when you come to know that the entire crew is only three people who have a genuine passion to enforce a paradigm change In the global work ethos.
Truelancer uses a combination of php and Larvel frameworks to create an effective, user friendly and interactive platform where each step has been simplified to make life easier for those looking to hire as well those looking for work.

The crew, namely Dipesh Garg, Rajshekhar Rajaharia and Yajendra Singh all come from technical education backgrounds and have been professional achievers in their respective fields. With humble beginnings in different small towns of Rajasthan, these thinkers are driven by determination, sheer will and a passion to create and serve.
All of them shared the common vision of creating a platform where every member gets a fair chance to promote his/her skills and exploit opportunities catered and available in one single domain.
Does Truelancer have potential?
I believe it does. With freelancing rising as a career trend all across the world, the talent base in India is potent to support an idea like this and help it grow to higher standards.
The overall market size of the online freelancing industry is predicted to reach from $2 Billion to $5 Billion by 2018 and $14 Billion by 2022. Hence, the time is ripe for Truelancer. In the next six months the team is determined to achieve Rs. 15 Lakh ($25000) in monthly freelance earning and a community as strong as 1 Lac freelancers and employers.
Long term achievements could well establish Truelancer as a market leader in the niche segment of freelancing. I say this because this form of online enterprise has not been experimented with In India before which makes Truelancer a pioneer with a unique product.
If you are a freelancer, I would suggest that you join the ride now for as Truelancer rises… so will you.
