Big Blue People allows you to find service providers near you and show the listing of available service providers where you can see their location, price and details about their services.
Big Blue People onboards only service providers that meet our requirements. I.e. Government ID is requested. We want you to see who you are hiring in advance. The more badges they have, the more trustable they are.
Big Blue People has a fast booking process through which you can save your time. We encourage our service providers to be responsive and we show their response time for your convenience.
Our mission is to work hard by connecting people who need a service, with providers who can offer a high-quality service, allowing us to build a trusted marketplace. We want to achieve this by empowering people through the use of technology. Our goal is to increase service providers earnings by offering their unique skill set as a service. By increasing visibility on the services offered it will allow service takers to do transactions with the best quality-price combination.
"Imagine a world where all services can be offered or chosen from the Big Blue People Marketplace"
We believe in people, and we believe we will make a difference by changing the way the services transactions are made, where a person who has a skill to offer a service will have the same opportunities to reach potential customers that an established company. Our values are based on the following:
Trust: We build trust through actions. Trust is key to our success. Offering transparency in our operations and our goals is the basis to create a long-term relationship with all our stakeholders.
Inclusion: Including every person that can offer a professional service is essential, we do not have any bias for person's origin, gender, beliefs or preferences.
Transparency: By providing visibility to the different services offered, prices, and reviews, we are creating a community that provides a fair price at a great service level.
Integrity: Do the right thing and be fair with all the stakeholders involved.
By serving our customers, we serve our society: By making it easier for people to access services, or to offer their services, we are making our society a better place to live in.
This story began with our founder, an Argentinian accountant, who had the chance to live in different countries in South America and Europe. He recently finished his EMBA in HULT (and) with all that knowledge and practice in several cities through South America, Asia, and Europe, he opened his mind to be a change maker.
The inspiration came from all pains he came across while moving from country to country. And also traveling to the different school campuses every month to study, he realized that all the pains always have something in common. In every country he went, he had to ask for advice to get a new house cleaner, a new masseur, a new doctor, a new electrician; and then checking whether their location was convenient, negotiating price, etc. Then he thought, what about if instead having to do this all the time he could create a marketplace for services which will do that job not only for him, also for the people who need it?
Great idea! What next? He needed a team. He was lucky enough to meet great people, from different parts of the world that when he shared his idea with them, they were on-board without any hesitation. We have today a great small multidisciplinary and multicultural experienced team with members from Argentina, Colombia, India, Mexico, Ireland, Russia and Brazil. When the time is right, and we believe it is the right fit for the team, we will be happy to welcome more members to our team.
What motivates us? We are a team made mainly of people coming from developing economies. We know first hand the situation in our countries, and want to give the tools to people that are not normally within the formal economy to offer their services, making this as an extra source of income for them. Also, making people’s life easier by allowing them to find the right service provider, at the right price in a convenient location.
We did a survey to test the idea, in which we got 700 answers across three different continents (America, Europe, and Asia). 383 persons showed interest in taking part of this new movement. If you are a survey provider that would like to be part of this movement, please leave your details with us. We will be ready to go live in the second semester of 2018.
We are a team, which hopes, to initiate a movement like the below leadership video: https://youtu.be/XQP_vM7GIFM
This is just the beginning of the story. To be continue…
