Software Company Growing Like a Weed (Recruit Rockstars 396)

Spring is here….
…Which means lawn care.
Ken Davis set out to change that.
He’s CEO of TaskEasy, based in Salt Lake City.
TaskEasy simplifies life by connecting people & technology to provide hassle-free yard care.
They bring convenience & relief to homeowners, renters, and businesses and empower local landscaping entrepreneurs with robust software.
What’s super-cool is TaskEasy’s patent-pending formula to establish fair market pricing for yard care services in statistical metropolitan areas in all 50 U.S. states.
So, no more haggling on price.
Since its consumer launch in 2013, TaskEasy has performed over 1 million tasks in 12,000 US cities & established a network of 10,000 screened and rated contractors.
Clearly, they’re onto something big. Investors include Camber Creek, Moderne Ventures, River Cities Capital, Grotech Ventures, Access Ventures.
Ken was named the prestigious EY Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst Young, so he knows a thing or two about scaling.
In this 20-minute conversation, he shares how he’s built an 80-person Rockstar team.
