Do It For Me
Done, the New York City startup that wants you to get to know your neighbors by employing them to do things for you, has decided to spend $5,000 for a lucky couple to have the perfect New York wedding as a demonstration of the power of Done. “Really, we have everyone who could contribute to making an amazing wedding,” Done’s community lead, Rachel Amondson, told Betabeat.
Done. is a New York-based startup that connects regular people with other regular people who are willing to pay them to do things. Things like “plan a party,” “learn something,” “help with my pet,” and our favorite, “help with tech,” because everyone knows the best way to get to know your neighbor is to hit them up for IT support.
Done., which raised almost a million in an oversubscribed round last year from investors including Khosla Ventures, Thrive Capital and angels including Harvard Business School professors Bill Sahlman and Joseph Bower, launched with a team of 12 and 100 “doers,” including Apple consultant Brendan Perreault, who in addition to making slow MacBook Pros fast again has the added bonus of being kind of a stud.
