Co-founder Linky took the initiative to contact Eveline Ferwerda, founder of Scribit.Pro and within minutes a bond was created. Scribit.Pro is an online platform aiming to provide accessibility to videos for those with an audio or visual disability. “Clients can create or order subtitles, audio description, transcripts and even order a sign language translation for any online video.” With countless people in the Netherlands alone depending on subtitles to understand a video the way its creator(s) intended, and more still needing the aid of audio description to know what is happening on screen, Scribit.Pro saw a great market opportunity. “There's a great client potential that you can easily serve if you provide them with the proper supportive files.”
“Noor's research project will be published soon and, hopefully, it will encourage the media outlets to up their game when it comes to providing proper subtitle support. And with Joppe's help we continue our growth in the Dutch market.”
As a fast growing start-up based in the heart of The Hague, they launched their video accessibility software and services two years ago and since then have learned a lot by working with their clients on a day-to-day basis. “With the clients input, our product and the services we offer have changed and grown.” After said growth, they wanted to expand their business development capability fast in order to handle that workload. In came Minite to provide them with easy access to a workforce to expand their team. And they found capable hands in High-Flyer Joppe and Noor.
Onboard with Scribit.Pro, Joppe, a student with an interest in management and finance, put his previous experience with cold calling to good use. Currently, he is supporting their sales team in the form of email marketing and lead generation. Meanwhile, Noor, a master student of International Relations with a genuine passion for themes related to global injustice and inequality, is doing a research project about the availability of subtitles for news videos at the 30 most visited online news providers in the Netherlands. The immediate value our two High-Flyers added is apparent. “Noor's research project will be published soon and, hopefully, it will encourage the media outlets to up their game when it comes to providing proper subtitle support. And with Joppe's help we continue our growth in the Dutch market.”
As Minite offered their support in the quest for finding the right High-Flyer for the job, Eveline was thankful of how straightforward and linear it was. “I like working with Minite and Linky has been a great support in the process.” They noted immense satisfaction with the procedure; from posting the job description to the immediate responses from qualified students. “It's also very flexible, you can either choose a per assignment commitment or a more durable relationship with a student.”
Minite continues to support its clients and students alike and Scribit.Pro is no exception. If you’d like to find your next student freelance talent to enhance your sales or research team, don’t wait and sign up now to post your very own freelance job!
