Launching soon on the 21st of March, new local start up, FindMyTradey.com aims to change the way Australians find builders, tradesmen and other services within the industry.
Entrepreneur Joshua Real is the man behind the new business. “I was constantly hearing stories of builders and trademen losing work during the Global Financial Crisis and not being able to afford to advertise for new work” says Real. Who then used this as motivation to start building the new site, learning how to create a website whilst juggling his full time job and duties as a father.
After a long road, the idea has finally come to fruition and he is excited to get the website live and an active community thriving. Although there are a few sites around like this such as service seeking and the newly launched Airtasker, the fact that this one is exclusive to a particular field means it has potential to grow especially if Real goes about forming some strong strategic partnerships with companies in the industry and markets correctly to tradespeople.
