It happens that we need someone helps at last minutes to complete our work. But it’s difficult to find anyone at that moment. Here is the today’s startup named Swifto based from US that will help you on these situations.
Swifto acting as a third party service aims to help solve all your last minute needs. By advertising whatever you need on Swifto (be it a shirt or help licking envelopes). It will connect you with someone close to you who can help you out.

What’s the concept/idea/product ?
Acting as a third party service Swifto aims to help solve all your last minute needs. By advertising whatever you need on Swifto (be it a shirt or help licking envelopes) we aim to connect you with someone close to you who can help you out.
What’s the value proposition / what benefits it brings to user ?
The benefit to the user is that they never have to worry about last minute problems again. Swifto has helped customers who need help moving furniture, clean out garages or needed a pair of pants connect with someone local who is able to help them.
How it beats the competition ?
Unlike the competition we go out of our way to solve your need. Whilst some other services may simply post you job on Twitter or a forum we utilize the latest in geo-location services to find the most suitable person who is closest to you and connect you.
How is the traction ?
Incredible. Since we have just launched in alpha we have managed to help solve so many problems. People have advertised themselves as gardeners and found work, people who need their garage cleaned have found helpers and someone who advertised themselves as a personal shopper was hired within 90 seconds of posting the ad.
Whats the future roadmap ?
With an iPhone and Android app arriving in the near future, and Facebook Connect implemented within coming days, we see the future as incredibly bright for Swifto. With each job closed we are constantly assessing and reassessing our performance and how it can be improved.
Any other information you would like us to know ?
With each passing day we see Swifto growing farther and farther. We are currently open only in New York City but will be rolling out to the rest of the United States very soon.
