Continuing on with the young entrepreneur interviews, Aric Franzmeier, the founder of FlipTask,a startup in Colorado joins me on the podcast.
FlipTask was created in 2012 by entrepreneur Aric Franzmeier, and was inspired to create FlipTask after seeing the current economic downturn affect the job market particularly among college graduates. He launched FlipTask as a new way to help out the local community by bringing new jobs to the city and surrounding areas.
I really like the idea of FlipTask. Customers get to view the profile of the person coming to help them which, to me, seems like a much safer version of Craigslist. It’s a simple, but great idea! Listen to the short interview to hear how Aric managed to get this company off the ground and some of the challenges he faced such as:
Unfortunately technology failed on me the day I was recording this interview (It affected another of my young entrepreneur interviews), so there is no video! However the audio is very clear.
I hope you enjoyed Aric talking about FlipTask and his experience with getting a startup off the ground. There are many more young entrepreneur interviews on the site with many different kinds of people & businesses. Feel free to check them out & let me know what you think!
