Gigrove - About and How it works

Gigrove provides ready-made online store and payment infrastructure to help freelancers and small businesses easily sell online. Through Gigrove you can sell digital products, shipping products as well as sell services through a booking calendar. The initial product for Gigrove was an online community and later on, the team decided to pivot to SaaS.

Gigrove - Founders and Team

The founder of Gigrove is Marko Islamovic. Currently, they are a team of 8 people.

Gigrove - How did it start?

Gigrove originally started as the online community for digital nomads and freelancers, but the founder, Marko, after a couple of years saw the opportunity to build an e-commerce SaaS. β€œThe initial people we talked to were our original users.” Said the founder, Marko Islamovic.

The founder and the team were originally a part of the gig economy and they love to travel and work remotely so that’s why they named the venture β€œGigRove.”

Gigrove - Startup Launch

β€œWe have been featured on Product Hunt so that helped us get first 100 users.” Added Marko Islamovic. The Gigrove team has been doing a direct approach when it comes to sales, they don’t really spend on paid promotions and advertisements as such.

Gigrove - Startup Challenges

The Gigrove team constantly tries to experiment with new features as this helps them in determining what is valuable for their users and what is not. They had a challenge implementing payment infrastructure behind online stores, as this required a lot of proof-of-concept testing since online stores are separate entities. And they succeed in this effortlessly.

Gigrove - Growth

Gigrove is currently operating in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia. The plan is to reach more markets and expand globally.
