Upending The Gig Economy with Moonlighting Founder and CEO, Jeff Tennery
Founder and CEO of Moonlighting, Jeff Tennery sat down with Chris Lustrin of KingsCrowd, a leading equity crowdfunding research and analytics platform that enables informed startup investment decisions, to discuss how we are using blockchain technology to disrupt the gig economy and traditional freelance marketplaces like Upwork and Thumbtack by removing the middleman so people can keep more of their hard-earned money.
Moonlighting has all of the pieces in place to be a highly successful company and is one that we are bullish on the future of. The founder Jeff Tennery, has spent his whole career in the mobile and media space. His career has included stops at AOL as SVP of mobile advertising, VP at nTelos Wireless in the Sales & Ops division and as VP of Sales & Marketing at AT&T.
This seasoned executive turned startup founder has already amassed $6M in funding from major media entities such as Tribune and Gannett to name a few and has grown its user base to over 650K users. What he and his team are doing is creating a marketplace for the gig economy that doesn’t price gouge its users and in doing so is creating a true competitor to the likes of Upwork and Thumbtack that are already billion dollar unicorns.
After speaking with Jeff, I am even more bullish on the opportunity as his vision and mindset for the business show signs of leading to true market differentiation.
