Technocratic platforms designed from a top-down approach to connect gig workers with consumers have the potential to negatively impact both parties involved. We acknowledge that these platforms disrupt the informal economy, creating a disconnect between lower-income workers, such as plumbers, electricians, and repairmen, and the consumers they serve.

In order to eliminate the intermediary, reduce consumer costs, and promote inclusivity for gig workers, we are developing a platform that facilitates connections between these two groups without a profit motive.
