Eden, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of on-demand workers to solve tech solutions in the home, raised $1.3m in seed funding.
The round was led by Canvas Venture Fund with participation from Eniac Ventures, Comcast Ventures, Maven Ventures, Y Combinator, Dylan Smith (Box) and James Beshara (Tilt), among others.
The company intends to use the funds for the expansion beyond the San Francisco Bay Area by the end of the year.
Led by CEO Joe Du Bey, CTO Kyle Wilkinson, COO Susie Sun and Guy Morita, Eden provides on-demand service via Tech Wizards, millennials who make $30/hour to help customers with their tech needs. The company vets and trains its wizards, who are dispatched to a customer’s home at a specified day and time per the customer’s request.
Eden’s services, which are $69/hour (first hour is free for new customers), encompass everything from computer troubleshooting and fixing a cracked iPhone screen to installing a Nest thermostat and even mounting a TV.
