TaskRabbit Acquires SkillSlate

Jan 11, 2012

SkillSlate is an auction-based website for local services. This acquisition marks some cahnges to the team. Bartek Ringwelski, SkillSlate’s co-founder and CEO, joins TaskRabbit as director of financial planning and analysis, Brian Rothenberg, co-founder and VP of Product & Marketing, comes on as director of online marketing and Mike Nelson, CTO, is the newest member of TaskRabbit’s engineering team. PRESS RELEASE As you know, 2011 was a pretty huge year for the TaskRabbit team. And now, it looks like 2012 is shaping up to be just as exciting. We are kicking the year off with some big news. Today, we are thrilled to announce that TaskRabbit has acquired SkillSlate! SkillSlate is an auction-based website for local services. SkillSlate crowdsources its network of service providers to help its customers with any task they need done or alternatively, provide instruction on a particular skill they’d like to develop. Sound familiar? SkillSlate is certainly similar to TaskRabbit, particularly in the sense that it’s a service marketplace. What makes SkillSlate unique, though, is its focus on skill-based and artistic tasks – including personal training, tutoring, DJing and even fire dancing. By integrating SkillSlate’s platform with TaskRabbit’s, we will be able to provide an even more enhanced service – one where folks can get help with practically anything. These integrations are sure to be awesome, but, as you’ve heard before, at TaskRabbit, chemistry is everything. We are so excited to have such a highly skilled and talented team of entrepreneurs joining our team. Bartek Ringwelski, SkillSlate’s co-founder and CEO, joins TaskRabbit as director of financial planning and analysis, Brian Rothenberg, co-founder and VP of Product & Marketing, comes on as director of online marketing and Mike Nelson, CTO, is the newest member of TaskRabbit’s engineering team. With this exciting news, we are looking forward to a wonderful and productive 2012! We wish you the same. Leah & Eric
