Worker-Owned

One 'Uber for X' to Rule Them All

Biz idea: An aggregator for “Uber for X”. Assumptions: lots of these companies like Handy and Cleanly have to send someone to your home. Some of these companies have not been doing so hot, and their contractors aren’t very happy. Idea: Improve margins by having a human or algorithm pick out potential areas where one contractor could fill multiple roles. Improve contractor morale by marketing it as a way for them to develop new skills. Pay contractors to train one another in each skill. Make it worker owned so that everyone has a strong incentive to be good teachers and to automate themselves out of the job. Ideally worker-owners learn the ins and outs of each skill/job and are thus able to help with the development of methods to automate each task. Slowly the machines take over the tasks with humans overseeing the robots, acting as customer support, building relationships with the client etc.
