GreenPal is an online market place connecting homeowners with lawn mowing professionals that want their business. Get 5 bids in minuets, pick the pro you want, and schedule and pay all online or with the mobile app. Founded by landscaping professionals to make the lawn care industry easier and more efficient for homeowners and vendors. But I wanted to find out more about the story behind the tech startup.
Bryan Clayton is CEO and co-founder of GreenPal which has been called the “Uber for lawn care” by Entrepreneur magazine and has over 100,000 active users completing thousands of transactions per day.
Before starting GreenPal, Bryan Clayton founded Peachtree Inc., one of the largest landscaping companies in the state of Tennessee, growing it to over $10 million a year in annual revenue before it was acquired in 2013. Here in 2020, if you live in the US, you can open an app on your phone and have someone come and cut your grass.
I learn more about his story that began when he was pushing a lawnmower many years ago and how he went on to scale to the whole of the US and maybe even the UK in the future. Bryan’s vast experience in entrepreneurialism, small business growth, marketing, and bootstrapping businesses from zero revenue to profitability and exit make this a must-listen for startup founders.
