Rated People, a London, UK-based online service connecting homeowners with local and recommended tradesmen, has received a £3m investment from Frog Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to continue recruitment and invest in its online platform and mobile applications.
Founded in 2005 by CEO Andy Skipwith, Rated People provides a trusted marketplace to connect homeowners and tradesmen, based on reviews and ratings from other homeowners in the Rated People community.
For homeowners, the service offers access to more than 30,000 high quality local tradesmen in the UK, representing 24 trades including bricklayers, builders, carpenters, electricians, painters, plumbers and roofers.
For tradesmen, Rated People offers the opportunity to generate more business and find work closer to their preferred locations.
In conjunction with the funding, Mike Reid, Frog’s Managing Partner, will join the company’s board.
