The Inception and the Idea
Edouard, a French entrepreneur who has been working in Hive Sai Kung, in Hong Kong since 8 years, was at loss finding competent domestic helpers in the city, two years ago! He wanted a professional child care helper or maid to take care of his son. But the process of hiring was getting tougher by the day as there were thousands of domestic helpers, especially foreign helpers in the city. Screening and choosing the right candidate proved to be a bigger hassle than he imagined.
Edouard went through the same process as others, discussing with several people, especially a lot of parents, who were stuck in the same rut of finding domestic helpers but to no avail. After a few months, Edouard thought of making a platform for connecting domestic helpers, drivers, maids and even child care helpers with respective employers. He zeroed in HelperPlace and got going on the mission for the same.
HelperPlace started out as a collaborative platform for domestic helpers to connect with employers directly. He envisioned that since there are more than 350,000 people who work as domestic Helpers, even they will find it tough to find perfect employers who can guarantee good pay and a great working environment. It was routinely in the news if employers misbehaved or tortured helpers and not many could challenge the predicament, since there were less jobs on offer that they could know. Similarly, employers found it difficult to trust and find helpers who were competent enough to fulfill their needs, especially in times of emergency.
