Startup Idea – Maid Service Marketplace

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Online marketplace for house cleaning
– Connect cleaners with homes
– Start with one local market, try to line up cleaners to get it started
– Or be prepared to do the cleaning yourself, to get started
– Charge a standard hourly rate, business gets %
– Easy job that anyone can do
– “Maids” get their profiles built up over time
– You are selling trust, same as AirBnB

Problems to think about
– Insurance / background checks required?
– How to keep people from going around the platform?

Startup Idea – Landlord Web App

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Landlord / Property Rental Manager (SaaS)
– collect money via cc
– communications via email, sms, emergency
– document storage for emergency info, utilities, next of kin, etc
– tenant onboarding (utilities, getting keys, city laws)
– scheduling for maitenence / inspections
– lawn care , snow plowing ?

Lots of existing (free) competition but could carve out a specific niche:
– solo owners of multiple houses
– mid-sized properties (30ish units) where there is a property manager who is not the owner
– huge companies with hundred+ units
– target low or high income renters / properties
– landlords who will pay a small fee for better service
