Fiverr and Steven Bartlett partner to support UK SMBs to reach their breakthrough moment


Fiverr launches competition with Dragon’s Den star offering three grantees unique mentorship and £10,000 Fiverr credit

LONDON, March 27, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fiverr International Ltd. (NYSE: FVRR), the company that is changing how the world works together, today announced ‘Break The Breakthrough’ - a collaboration with world-renowned entrepreneur, podcaster, author and the youngest ‘dragon’ on BBCs Dragon’s Den, Steven Bartlett, in efforts to support UK SMB growth.

Through Fiverr’s new ‘Break The Breakthrough’ campaign, Fiverr has launched a competition for UK residents above 18 years old who have an established business to win expert consultation with Bartlett and Fiverr. Three grantees will be awarded £10,000 in Fiverr Credits, dedicated guidance from a Fiverr Customer Success Manager and a 45-minute mentorship session with one of Britain’s most respected entrepreneurs.

“We’re thrilled to be continuing our long-term relationship with Steven. His inspirational mentorship style and drive to help fellow entrepreneurs align with our mission to connect businesses with highly skilled professionals. Following rough economic headwinds, skills shortages and rising costs, UK businesses continue to face hurdles that impact their growth. This competition enables SMBs to get first-hand access to a powerhouse entrepreneur and specialised freelance consultation. We’re excited to see freelancers become indispensable partners for these SMBs, helping them in their breakthrough journey.” comments Bukki Adedapo, UK Country Manager at Fiverr.

Steven will join various UK SMB owners, helping them to discover their desired breakthrough, whether that’s increasing revenue or entering a new market, Steven will help them identify this then build a dedicated plan on how to get there. With Fiverr at the helm, Steven will equip businesses with the world’s leading freelance talent and expert mentorship to achieve their business breakthroughs.

“One of the most common mistakes I see business owners make is trying to take on everything themselves. Discovering Fiverr was transformative for me, every time I needed an expert or professional specialising in digital services it became my default marketplace. Rather than attempting to do things that are not in my skill set, I hired experienced freelancers in their field. As a result, I was able to accomplish more, and focus on growing my business.” said Steven Bartlett.

The partnership comes during a pivotal time as Fiverr released a major update of its platform, having recently launched new features to keep businesses and freelancers ahead of the game and introducing Fiverr Agencies. Fiverr’s Winter Product Release, the first of two major product announcements planned for 2024, is part of Fiverr’s innovative response to the feedback from the freelancers and businesses it has served over the last 14 years.
