20 Jan Helping people sell their services with Beecose
By Teryn O’Brien
“How many of you have moved out of state or to a new city at least once?” asked Edmundo Torquemada, founder of Beecose (Kellerworx, LLC, dba Beecose).
Moving to a new place is always difficult, because simple things are unknown. And getting to know a city and one’s neighbors can be hard. So what can make it easier? Community.
Beecose’s goal is to empower normal, everyday people to sell and buy skill-based, peer-to-peer services. Clients will be able to find on-demand help where they need it. It’s about building a relationship between people within a community and connecting people to people for services. Beecose takes a maximum 18% cut from transactions.
“In the last few years, there has been a strong trend toward monetizing your personal assets,” said Torquemada. He pointed out examples like Uber, which has capitalized on people’s cars, and Airbnb, Inc., which has capitalized on people’s homes. However, there is no leading company that is capitalizing on people’s services.
“The middle class has increased by 140 million people,” said Torquemada.
Beecose wants to be the number one company to help people sell their services. Right now, it is focusing on the Dallas-Fort Worth area, although they are expanding globally.
“We have a two-year road map that will help us achieve that goal,” said Torquemada.
