Tom Harari, Co-Founder and CEO of Cleanly, joins This Changes Things to discuss how Y Combinator helped get his company off the ground.
Cleanly is an on-demand service that picks up and delivers laundry/dry cleaning to your door. It launched in 2015 and with the help of technology has become pretty efficient. Drivers are able to use data insights such as photos of the parking situation and apartment floor count to shave off a few minutes each delivery.
Plus, this industry is all about customer service so how does Cleanly make sure people keep coming back? Harari says empathy is key. Customers want to know they're being heard.
