99design founders invest $460,000 in Tweaky, a marketplace for minor website customizations

Tweaky, which operates a marketplace where you can have small things fixed on your website for a minimal fee, has raised $460,000 in seed funding from 99designs and Flippa.com co-founders Mark Harbottle and Matt Mickiewicz, and their SitePoint Group.

Formerly known as Themepivot.com, Tweaky was founded by Australian entrepreneurs Ned Dwyer and Pete Murray, who won a local edition of Startup Weekend in Melbourne last November.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

Dwyer, who serves as CEO, explains the reasoning behind the service:

“Web site owners are fed up paying upwards of $150 an hour to a local web developer, or wading through quotes on freelance marketplaces for a better deal. Tweaky.com now provides web site owners with a compelling, cost effective alternative when it comes to customizing their web sites.”

How cost-effective you mean, since that’s just a nicer way of saying cheap?

Well, website owners or publishers can have minor customizations (dubbed – you guessed it – ‘tweaks’) done starting at $25 each. All tweaks come with a 100% money-back guarantee, and are carried out by freelance web developers worldwide, who Tweaky claims have been hand-picked.
