Freelancer lures key investors from Facebook, MYOB, Seek

Shares in the online marketplace for outsourcing will begin trading on the ASX on Friday with a who's who of online investors on its share register.

The $17.5 million initial public offering of Freelancer Ltd, the world’s largest online marketplace for outsourcing, has attracted a founding investor in Facebook Inc, the founder and management of internet job site Seek Ltd and the cofounder of accounting software company Myob Ltd.

Freelancer closed its IPO early after it was flooded with demand from investors such as Facebook investor Joel Sng, Seek’s Andrew Bassat, Paul Bassat and Jason Lenga as well as MYOB cofounder Brad Shofer.
