Twitter co-founder to invest in freelancing service provider platform Sieve


To see an a major push to the thriving startup ecosystem in Kerala, Christopher Issac ‘Biz’ Stone, co-founder of Twitter, a social networking application to initiate digital campaigns and write a post in 280 characters, will invest in Sieve, a Kochi-based startup, cited Inc42.

This comes at a time when the Kerala government is pitching the state as the ideal destination for startups and technology giants to set the base for business ventures in India, the Middle East and South-East Asia.

“I have used the product of Sieve as a freelancer. As an angel, I consider the person first and the product second. I find Sanjay as a dedicated, empathetic and extremely hardworking individual,” said Stone.

Sieve was founded by Sanjay Nediyara. It is a platform for freelancers and agencies that provide the infrastructure from websites and digital signatures to invoicing and payment management. Currently serving in the US, Sieve will soon expand its services to the European market.

“Our larger vision is to build truly Internet companies in the cloud where people can form companies and work from anywhere in the world,” Nediyara said.

In April 2018, Stone backed Delhi-based healthtech startup, Visit, which works to democratise healthcare by shrinking the shortage of doctors using artificial intelligence.
