TaskFriend was started in 2014 because local gigs platform weren't available in college towns like Urbana-Champaign, even to this day. We also thought that it was ridiculous that these platforms, where available, would charge up to a third of what people earned in fees. TaskFriend was created as a way to remove all the barriers such as high transaction fees that drive up the cost of services and prevent people from coming to work together.
Throughout the past five years, TaskFriend has gone through many variations and the biggest lesson we learned was that it doesn't matter if you're passionate about a cause if you don't have a scalable business model. Without one, how will anyone ever find out about your organization or use your product?
Since the beginning of 2019, TaskFriend made a breakthrough pivot to give groups and organizations a new way to fundraise. This pivot keeps our core values in-line while giving our company a scalable business model. As of today, TaskFriend is a fully developed mobile application available on both iPhone and Android devices.
