It’s not just transportation and food delivery that are going on-demand today. Increasingly, most service categories can benefit from the friction-reducing effects of modern, smartphone-powered booking and the flexibility of a dynamic workforce.
The latest category to join the revolution is home IT support, thanks to the launch of Los Angeles-based HelloTech. The company today announced $2.5 million in seed funding from a Upfront Ventures, Accel Partners*, Crosscut Ventures, Amplify.LA, Ron Burkle, and other angels, as well as plans to launch its alpha service in West-LA in April. The company was founded by Richard Wolpert, a former Apple, Disney, and RealNetworks executive, co-founder of the Amplify.la accelerator, and a venture-partner at Accel.
