Trusper, founded by a serial entrepreneur and investor Jack Jia, has raised $6.17M in Series A round. Zillionize is glad to be a seed investor of Trusper.
The idea for Trusper – a neologism for a “trusted helper” – came to Jia, a mister fixit type who likes to do his own construction projects around his house, when his friends started asking him for tips on how to do things like add putting greens to their own homes.
Jia, who had a black notebook filled with his own notes from past projects for things like putting up retaining walls, said he always intended to get his tips online… And so Trusper was born.
