Adevinta Ventures invests in Shakers’ seed funding round


Barcelona, 30 October 2023 - Adevinta Ventures, the investment arm of Adevinta, a leading online classifieds group, today announced its investment in Shakers, a Spanish-based online platform that enables companies to connect with digital specialists to develop their technology projects in a more agile way.

Adevinta Ventures has invested in the seed funding round alongside funds BrightEye Ventures and Athos Capital, with participation from Wayra (Telefónica) and existing investors such as Clave Capital and CDTI Innvierte.

The funding round totals €6 million and enables the online platform for freelancers to accelerate its ambition to become a leading European portal that helps businesses and digital workers connect in a more agile and flexible way. The Shakers team will continue to develop its proprietary AI technology, which applies behavioural science to assemble teams with the optimal skill set for a company's product mission, generating perfect matches.

Compared to last year, the Shakers community has grown sevenfold due to the increased demand for ready-to-deploy tech talent.

Leire Corral, Senior Investment Principal at Adevinta Ventures, said: “The labour market is changing: companies of all sizes are facing skills gaps across their workforce, especially in the product and tech sectors. There has also been an increase in demand for more flexible working options amongst highly skilled workers. Shakers is bridging this gap with technology and shaping a new way of working. We are thrilled to support the Shakers team on their exciting growth trajectory.”

Héctor Mata, co-founder and CEO of Shakers, commented: "Shakers was born with the vision of reinventing work. We imagine a world where companies and digital workers can connect in a much faster and more efficient way to develop high-impact projects. We are excited to welcome Adevinta Ventures as a new investor as we embark on the next phase of our journey.
