Company

Business description: TaskRabbit is about solving an age-old problem: there is never enough time in the day to get it all done. With TaskRabbit, we harness the power that has always existed in a community to get real things done. Leveraging the latest technology and the social networking paradigm, we are building trust and blurring the lines between and on-and offline community. At TaskRabbit, we are pioneering a trend that we are calling Service Networking. TaskRabbit helps individuals and small businesses in a community outsource their tasks and deliveries. Since the original idea and launch, TaskRabbit has come full circle by partnering with many pet stores in the Boston area, providing a quick and easy way to get dog food delivered. Kobe will never go hungry again!
