Tackling one big problem
Houman Kashy, Founder and CEO of Presto realized a problem in 2015 when he found it a challenge connecting with local pros. The pros he was trying to connect with also wanted to work with new customers. As a solution to connect the two, Presto was born in 2016 and remains in beta as we expand across Canada.
Presto allows local businesses and independents to post listings for their services and reach out to a wider audience. They can charge whatever amount makes it worthwhile for them, earn additional income and grow their business. By connecting these service providers to customers, Presto is also contributing to the growth of local economy. When such small businesses bloom, they create more jobs, attract more funds from investors and make their respective industries more organized. Even local entrepreneurship gets a boost.
