Oisin Hanrahan – Founder & CEO of Handy
Another kick-ass founder-CEO to join the stellar speaker lineup: Oisin Hanrahan is a serial entrepreneur with deep knowledge of two-sided marketplaces. He is also a keen politics and technology geek: prior to Handy, he launched MiCandidate – a platform assisting big media companies with political content. He also started the Undergraduate Awards, a NGO recognizing exceptionally talented students on the undergraduate level.
One may think that it’s a long way from political media production to delivering home services, but sometimes it takes just a chaotic flatshare. Inspired by his messy flatshare in Boston, Oisin co-founded Handy, one of the top dogs in the market of providing home services. With millions of transactions nationwide, Handy has changed the way that people buy services every day. Over 100,000 home cleaners, handymen, electricians and carpenters have worked on the Handy platform, serving over half a million customers. Oisin has raised over $120 million in capital to help Handy address the $400 billion home services market.
