About Just Fix
Just Fix is a hyper-local, real-time marketplace that connects customers with pre-vetted tradespeople in order to provide the fastest, most trusted solution to urgent home maintenance needs. The slick technology makes finding a builder just as easy as booking a taxi or ordering a take-away.
Founder and CEO, Adam Graham, developed the concept after a frustrating experience trying to secure a quick remedy to his own property maintenance emergency. His solution promises to ‘uberise' this historically sluggish sector.
Just Fix is now engaged in a funding round, based on a pre-money valuation of GBP2.5 million. They have chosen to democratise the investment opportunity, and bring on board early-stage advocates of the service, through the equity crowdfunding platform, Seedrs, and are currently engaged in private conversations with investors ahead of the public phase, launching in April.
Just Fix is aiming at revenue of over GBP100 million by Year 5, and with significant growth throughout the coming years.
