Help us redefine the conventional employment model while helping people that are time poor find a new level of convenience.
With the advances of geo-location and other things I have been working on I figured everyone should get a chance to work, make money and feed their families. Everyone has some skill whether its painting, singing, cooking or even lifting heavy things up and with this application I wanted to give one side the chance to earn money and the other side (for a person who might be poor on time) to order what they need. We call these heroes Spenders and Earners. I started investing everything I had saved to develop it and started raising funds to commision a research of the marketplace.
We finished development and launched the iOS version April 1st. The feedback we are getting from our current Heroes is great but we aren’t fundraisers therefore are trying to get the word out without spending 100 million dollars on Marketing. If we had it, we’d invest it just to give everyone a chance.
When we received the research report, we saw the number one concern people had was with strangers that weren’t vetted showing up to their door therefore we implemented a Background check service similar to Uber and Lyft. When we were trying to raise funds we were being compared to TaskRabbit and handy which is a wonderful compliment but MobileHero offers over 56 categories plus a custom category option to open Pandora’s box. Any person with any skill or service can post it and we charge only half the price (15%) of our so called competitors.
Mobilehero also decided to take the instant approach as opposed to scheduling appointments. Whatever you need. Whenever you need it. Wherever you need it.
For now I am self funding the marketing via social media but am looking for an investor or partner to help Mobilehero.
About Project Creator:
From 2005-2008 I worked in the Sub-Prime Mortgage market always being a top producer. In 2008 when the bubble popped, everyone from NYC firms like Lehman Brothers and Bear Sterns were all looking for jobs as there were hundreds of thousands unemployed people fresh in the market. I of course was just 21 at the time and had no idea what to do. I looked for a job and sent hundreds of resumes all across the board but employment wasn’t available.
I packed my stuff and traveled to Tel Aviv where I was introduced to the start up scene. Being a top candidate everywhere I went in Tel Aviv I realized that I or my resume wasn’t the problem but the conventional employment model had let me down. I continued in Finance until the tech and the idea jumped in my head. In May of 2015 I founded Mobilehero, Inc.
