Maid Pro

Free Webinar: MaidPro, The Technologist in Maid’s Clothing

My research shows that the most successful companies of this new era are far more comfortable jumping industry boundaries than their peers. They fluster competitors with a strategic dynamic that forces a two-front battle. Google does this. Apple does this. Blue Nile does this.

Come learn how an innovative maid service franchise is doing this too. On the surface, MaidPro seems to be simply in the business of cleaning homes. But at its heart lies a software company.

On August 10, we get a chance to hear firsthand from the company’s founder, Mark Kushinsky, how a bad experience searching for a maid evolved into a multi-million-dollar business that is challenging a fragmented, old industry.
