My guest for episode 2 of The Startup Playbook Hustle is Noga Edelstein, the Co-founder and Director of UrbanYou.
Noga spent several years as a legal professional in organisations such as Allens, Foxtel and Yahoo before taking the leap to start UrbanYou, an on-demand cleaning, gardening and handyman platform.
Since launching in 2014, the company has seen rapid growth in the business, completing over 18,000 bookings and with over $3M worth of services being sold.
In October this year, UrbanYou also announced it’s acquisition of HomeHello, opening the door to the Brisbane market.
In this episode we talk about:
– Jumping into startups from corporate life
– The business of marketplaces
– Using acquisition as a growth strategy
