Hey guys,

We’ve got some really awesome news to share with you. Today we announced that we’ve received $2 million from Exto Partners, BridgeLane Capital and some amazing angel investors from Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

We’re super excited about bringing on this new round of funding which we’ll be using to improve the Airtasker experience for you – our community. Here’s what we’re working on:

1. Brand new platform – for the past few months we’ve been working on a completely new website which we know you will love. If you would like an invite to join our Top Secret test team, register here.
2. New mobile apps – our new website is mobile ready but for all you app-sters out there, we’re building brand new apps for both iPhone and Android.
3. More flexible jobs – we’re spreading the word about Airtasker to create more job opportunities for our awesome community – we’ve got some big ideas. To help spread the love, join us on Facebook.
4. Stickers and #swag – get ready for some new Airtasker merch including tees, stickers and other awesome #swag! Want an Airtasker laptop sticker? Email us.

It’s been a huge year, which has seen monthly job volumes grow 300% but we’ve still got so much work to do. I would like to truly thank each and every one of our community members for your contribution to bringing Airtasker to life – we couldn’t have done it without you.

Massive thanks from all at Airtasker!
