TaskRabbit.com connects neighbors to get things done: it uses social, mobile and location-based technologies to bring people together.
The service connects ‘TaskPosters’, people who need help, with ‘TaskRabbits’, a network of fully vetted and background-checked individuals, who have the time and skills needed to complete the job. It also includes a category of services called virtual assistance, for those that are searching help over the web for vacation planning, usability testing or remote academic research.
TaskRabbit was founded in 2008 by Leah Busque and it is headquartered in the city of San Francisco, California. Up to the end of 2011, the company received a total of $24.7 million dollars in funding in Seed, Series A and Series B rounds. At the beginning of 2012, the company was headed by Eric Grosse, CEO.
