In the land of the Big Apple time Fly’s and New Yorkers multi task everything from work to school. In some cases chores go undone in steps in Task Rabbit to the rescue. TaskRabbit, the online marketplace that allows people to outsource errands and other jobs.
TaskRabbit gets you in touch with friendly, reliable people who can help you get just about anything you need done, and put some free time back into your life.
The site’s founder, 31-year-old Leah Busque, said she came up with the idea when she and her husband realized that they’d forgotten to get dog food for their Labrador Kobe.
“We thought, wouldn’t it be nice if there were just a place online you could go—say we needed dog food—where we could name the price we wanted to pay [for someone to do the chore]?” Busque said. “We were certain that there was someone in our neighborhood who was willing to help out.”
Busque left her job at IBM four months later to start the site, which was originally called RunMyErrand.com. It launched in Boston in 2008 and moved to Silicon Valley in 2009 after participating in Facebook’s fbFund incubator program.
