Our Team

Income inequality is a global scourge to this day. Oftentimes, it leads to financial abuse/being silenced. I know from experience. Our expertise allowed us to build a solution. So we built the platform that democratizes access to new income in working on-demand. For every local community worldwide.

A 🌏 Where Everyone Benefits from The On-demand Gig Economy.


Gig workers in the post-pandemic are fed up with current platforms. 

Unethical and limited opportunities for local workers in the on-demand gig economy. Pushing app after app that caps earning opportunities to driving, delivery, or other niched services.

We believe the time is up for these platforms. It's time for a new wave of innovation for the on-demand gig economy, globally.

Hallo Helper is built to democratize what every local worker can offer to earn income on-demand. For customers in their local area, anywhere in the world. 

In return, we become the platform with the most options for the on-demand consumer.

We've seen that On-demand Services are the new service vertical. — These are types of services that come to customers, when and where they need it.

Born out of 2017's Natural Disaster

Top Five Startup Winners at BitAngels Pitch competition in Puerto Rico.

Founders Alan Burke and Jan Reese Rondina came up with the concept of Hallo in the aftermath of 2017 Hurricane Maria. The storm of the century that devastated Puerto Rico.

The duo bootstrapped the platform's creation and technology build for close to 3 years, finally launching the dual-app marketplace in all App Stores on January of 2021. 

Yes, right in the midst of a pandemic shutdown.

The idea was to create a “moving forward” solution to provide income continuance after a disruption, and preserve the quality of living after a natural disaster.

Hallo Helper Founders
"The traction and achievements mean more to us, because we did it as migrants in a place with a language different than our own." 
— Jan, CEO/Founder

"... If you're going to bet on a startup team, choose those proving they can grow under circumstances that would end others. This type of team doesn't believe in giving up. "
— Alan, President/Founder

2020 Projected Average Transaction Value (ATV) at $80.50* —› 2022 Actual ATV is at $202.26

Projected year 5 user base: 522,325* users

5-Year Platform Volume Milestone using $80* ATV:

(522k* users) X (1.5x* transactions/user/yr) X ($80* ATV) = $62,640,000* /yr
* = forward-looking numbers. Based on statistical data and cannot be guaranteed.

Our Peer-to-Peer Business Model

We built this social platform to mimic the demand-driven expansion capabilities of Social Media Apps, and the high-transaction volume benefits of  Marketplaces like Amazon.

Combined with our own proprietary tech to solve major barriers for users in any market.

Market-Maker's Revenue Model

Using one of our founder's expertise, we built a more efficient and sustainable platform, and more market-friendly scalable model.

Revenue Model: Transaction-based Subscriptions

Hallo App User Fee: 5%/transaction

Helper App User Fee: 15%/transaction

(ATV) Average Transaction Value: $202 (current)

"Marketplaces with the Most Efficiency and Buyer-friendliness are the ones that capture the Most Transaction Volume."
— Alan Burke | Financial Mathematics (M.SC), Theoretical Physics (BA)
    Premium Subscriptions and other revenue channels are currently being beta tested.

    Hyper-local Product Defensibility 

    Some key factors known to prevent expansion into micro-markets. Markets where our hyper-local product shines.

    • Cost and Worth : Micro, or Niche, Markets don't make for expansion markets, especially for bigger companies. The ROI is just too low for their investors and executives to accept. 
    • Localization Problems : Micro Markets, like Puerto Rico, have their own culture and buyer motivations. Past U.S. companies have failed to connect to the local market. 
    In Puerto Rico, Groupon was beaten by a smaller company, Gustazos, which locals chose over them. 
    Recently, Amazon was reported to be lagging behind hyper-local company, FlipKart, in India!
    • Platform Restructuring : In order for entrants to stay competitive to Hallo Helper, they would have to restructure their platform in order to include more services to their offering, as we’ve already done. Restructuring is one of the Costliest Pivots for any company.
    A big fund investor told us recently that if an investor hears or sees "niche market", they've already passed.
    It's a term that turns them off faster than you can say "hello".

    In underserved Micro Markets, we're the first on-demand app catering to any service the consumer needs on a day-to-day basis.

          Important notes 🚨

          We're not allowed to raise an unlimited amount in this SAFE Note offering. If the offering becomes oversubscribed, we’ll likely pare people down – rather than cut some people out entirely. Accredited investors will have priority. 

          We're committed to building innovative technology to include more people. So, why shouldn't this apply to our funding model too?

          Opening our SAFE Note round to more people is the best way to practice what we preach.
