Customers and freelancers both have the co-founder of Handy, Oisin Hanrahan, to thank. Hanrahan came up with the idea for Handy after a short stint in real estate. While traveling through London, he discovered the value of the (then new) concept of on-demand booking. At the time, he saw how travel and transportation services employed on-demand systems to set up rides. Over the years, Hanrahan and his Harvard friend played with the notion of combining home service professionals with on-demand booking programs.
