Ayudarum: an Austrian crowdsourcing company in the Startup Chile accelerator program

Startup Chile had provided Ayudarum with a mentor to help them understand how to grow Ayudarum’s number of users. Ayudarum’s initial business model, which had functioned well in Europe, involved partnering with universities. Universities made the Ayudarum site available to students who, in turn, logged in with their student email account. Once there was a large base of students onboard, firms were contacted to advertise jobs on the site. Now that the founders were trying to tap into the South American market, they discovered that students did not use their university email addresses and that there were distinct cultural differences in the way students worked, found jobs, and were paid.

In Iraq, for instance, over US$51 billion is spent through public procurement. Yet, the smaller enterprises are not benefiting from their fair share of that spending.” To address these issues, the World Bank is working with governments, training institutions, and the private sector in eight countries to reach out to SMEs and expose them to tools and methods that will help them to compete in the public market. In sum, over 70 trainings will have taken place by the end of June, 2015, under a landmark regional program funded by the MSME Facility of the Arab World Initiative. In KRG, the Kurdistan Contractors Union has collaborated with the Ministry of Planning to execute 10 workshops across four cities, targeting 250 SMEs.
