Gigwalk has launched publicly in the App Store after a six-month beta, offering a way for iPhone users to make up to $1,600 a month doing temporary mobile tasks like collecting and reporting real world data with their phones.
The Gigwalk mobile workforce is a community of folks like you using their iPhone to connect, explore, and earn a second paycheck as they go about their day.
Gigwalk pays people on behalf of big brands and mapping companies to go to particular locations and snap pictures or describe things like store windows. Gigwalk contracts with large companies that are looking to gather data in the real world–on everything from street data to real estate to marketing intelligence on storefront displays to restaurant menu information.
Gigwalk has secured $1.7 million seed round, with investment from Reid Hoffman of Greylock Discovery Fund, Jeff Clavieer of Softech VC, Michael Dearing of Harrison Metal, Bill Trenchard of Founder Collective and Alex Lloyd of Accelerator Ventures.
