Handii, The Uber of Servicemen, Wins Tech Cocktail Week’s Hottest Showcasing Startup

Last night, as part of Tech Cocktail Week's Mixer and Startup Showcase in Downtown Las Vegas, Handii was announced the hottest showcasing startup.

The Las Vegas-based startup is aiming to become the Uber of handymen.  Users start simply by entering their address, tap the Handii button, and a Handii (i.e. handyman) arrives to their location within minutes.  The cost structure is simple – $1 per minute with a $30 minimum – so too is the rating system, with Handii's receiving either a “good job” or “bad job” after finishing their task.

We look forward to learning more about the startup with their upcoming interview.
