Given that the number of people going into business for themselves is rising quickly, it makes sense that such enterprising folks would desire a service like Freeter. Described as "the organizer for freelancers and creatives," the Singapore-based startup helps people work on multiple projects at the same time.
Despite what it may seem, multi-tasking can actually reduce productivity as switching back and forth between tasks can negatively affect workflow. This tool makes switching less taxing so you can work smarter.
Created by web apps developer Alex Kaul, a freelancer himself and self-described digital nomad, Freeter is currently in beta mode and has not yet been made accessible to the public at-large. The platform will launch officially on March 23rd, 2016.
