Ben Alfrey, Co-founder of Gradlancer added: “The financial investment from Just Develop It has allowed Gradlancer to really get off the ground. Not only are we in the process of developing a new website but Just Develop It has also been able to supply us with offices, help with our marketing and provide PR support.
