Leah Busque was kind enough to make time to meet up with me today at the TaskRabbit.com offices in downtown San Francisco. Leah has a very cool business working on the simple premise of neighbours helping neighbours. TaskRabbit is an online marketplace, connecting people, to get everyday jobs and tasks done. Leah raised $6.85MM in financing from Shasta Ventures, Collaborative Fund, 500 Startups, Floodgate Fund, First Round Capital, and Baseline Ventures.
I dropped into their very green offices today to sit down and chat with Leah. We talked about what we are up to here at PayrollHero.com, our similar experiences being “new” to the Silicon Valley world and how TaskRabbit was planning for the future. Leah was kind enough to share her insights on fund raising, the need for mentors and advisors and how she was growing her business.
