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.

Origin Story:

[Pictured from left: ShredSpots, J. Nichelle, Michael Terpin, Hallo Founders @ BitAngels Web3 Pitch Competition Top 5]

Co-Founders Alan T. Burke and Jan Reese Rondina conceived Hallo in the aftermath of the 2017 Hurricane Maria, witnessing the need for income continuance after major disruptions. They bootstrapped the platform's creation and technology build for close to 3 years, launching the platform's user apps in a sandbox micro-community in Puerto Rico.

The platform was developed as a moving forward solution to preserve quality of living while providing diverse income options. Available for free on iOS App Store and Google Play Store.

The Problem:

In the wake of the pandemic, global gig workers and independent home pros have grown disillusioned with existing gig platforms. These platforms offer limited opportunities and perpetuate unethical practices that hinder the progress of local workers in the gig economy. It's high time for a paradigm shift and the advent of a new wave of innovation. 

“Time is up for these platforms. It's time for a new wave of innovation for the on-demand gig economy.”

The Solution:

Enter Hallo Helper, the trailblazing peer-to-peer social platform that revolutionizes income options for workers worldwide. By harnessing the power of this groundbreaking platform, local workers can flourish, offering a diverse range of on-demand services to customers in their local areas. Hallo Helper ensures that customers have access to the most comprehensive selection of on-demand services from verified and trusted workers in their vicinity, setting a new standard for the industry.

Built to be seamless and adaptable, operating as a plug-and-play solution equipped with core building blocks of the most efficient and most robust application technology.

Full-stack tech ecosystem including a diverse range of consumers and workers in the gig economy. Boasting a tech stack that holds the most secure and interoperable payment rail, robust cloud database infrastructure that can merge with blockchain technology, and IPFS (InterPlanetary File System).

The Platform : A Peer-to-Peer Gig Economy 

"Convenience of on-demand living & new opportunities of on-demand working."

Current Platform User Benefits: 

1. Posting a Job Request is as easy as Posting a recommendation on Facebook. Using our platform, customers are able to get direct responses and matched offers from fully vetted workers in their area. Eliminating middlemen or back and forth attempts to connect via calls or DMs.

  • This added convenience improves the lifestyle of gig economy customers, as well as, increases the workers efficiency and earning potential. 

2. The platform uses a user-based consensus protocol between its two applications to ensure: verified job completion, secure job payments after completion, and reputation building via a 2-way rating system.

  • This allows users peace of mind when hiring or getting jobs, while ensuring high-standards of quality one transaction at a time.

3. The Hallo Helper platform's in-app SmartChat allows users who speak varying languages to connect, communicate, and complete a job successfully.

4. The Hallo Helper platform's proprietary JobsFeed allows customers to see daily booked jobs by others in their area. For workers, the feed allows them to see all open job requests as posted by customers nearby.

Hybrid 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 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 Subscription
  • 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 T. Burke , Co-Founder; Financial Mathematics (M.SC); Theoretical Physics

Premium Subscriptions and other monetization channels are currently being beta tested.

Defensibility: Hyperlocal + Autonomous Ops

  • Micro-markets: Markets where our hyperlocal platform shines.
  • Cost Benefit: 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 and Adoption: Micro Markets have their own set of culture, language, buyer motivations. Hallo Helper platform is built with those in mind.

..."Recently, Amazon was reported to be lagging behind hyper-local company, FlipKart, in India!"

  • Restructuring: In order to compete vs. Hallo Helper, other platforms would have to restructure their business, user experience, and pricing!

"In underserved micro-markets, we're the first gig economy app catering to any jobs local consumers need on a daily basis. Our micro-market has been defined and battle-tested."
