There will be two worlds - before Indiez and after Indiez.
On his solo backpacking trip to Vietnam, Indiez founder Nitesh Agrawal met a group of digital nomads hailing from all over the world, and he was absolutely amazed to hear their experiences. "Why can't everyone work like this?" he thought. Nitesh researched this concept deeply, and it soon led him to realize the immense power of the #futureofwork movement. Our mission is twofold: To empower developers and designers all over the world to take on challenging, exciting dev projects, and enable non-tech companies to take advantage of this endless pool of talent. By tackling both, we hope to usher in a new era for workplace culture and tech innovation. We know how hard it is to find the right tech agency or freelancer. The wide range of quotes, the narrow expertise, the uncertainty -- all of this weighs heavy on non-tech company founders, CMOs, and other leaders. Indiez is here to change that.
The word "Indiez" is derived from the word `indie` (think indie artists) and symbolizes 'independence'. Independence from the status quo. Independence from outdated technologies. Independence from geographical barriers.
