GETTING THE JOB DONE!
When Tarik Khribech, 37, came to the United States from his native Morocco, he arrived with a slightly different version of the American Dream. "My goal was to get the work done so other people didn’t have to,” says Khribech, from his ChoreRelief offices (www.chorerelief.com) located in the 1871 Technology Incubator located in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. “I never thought, or think of the U.S. as providing a ‘free ride’, rather a vehicle to work hard, help others and get where I want to be,” he says with a smile. The young entrepreneur was quickly recognized by investors and speculators alike, earning him a spot in the 1871 tech incubator and seed money for his next venture. Khribech put together a team to help spread the word and in 2016, ChoreRelief was born. “Thriving and productive providers are the key to a healthy, sustainable shared economy and to a great consumer experience,” says Khribech. “When providers are empowered as entrepreneurs and consumers are served according to their need, price point, and location…everyone wins.” ChoreReliefcombines the online convenience of finding qualified providers to get the job done, whatever the job may be while allowing consumers to set their own parameters, price and time. “Who wants to sit around waiting out a 4 hour window to get household chores and projects done?” says Khribech. “We are streamlining the process to make the experience easy, cost efficient and results driven.” Service providers are encouraged to develop their own brand and profile as well. Independent workers make up between 20% and 30% of the working age population and this figure is projected to grow to 40% by 2020 (McKinsey 2016). ChoreRelief is putting these numbers to work for them, the providers and the consumers. “The sharing economy has lost sight of the humanity of work,” says Khribech. “No one needs or deserves a free ride, but people want to be treated with dignity and respect and feel as though they’re in control of their own destiny. The sharing economy – needs to share the economy.” “Everyone wants to hear the term ‘I’ve got this!’ so that they can relax and tend to other priorities,” says Khribech. “That’s the mission behind ChoreRelief. We get to work, so the consumer doesn’t have to!”
WHAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED SO FAR
