What problem does your startup solve?

Eropa Stein: “We solve the problem of very expensive event staffing agencies. At this moment 75% of hotels currently use staffing agencies when they need extra bartenders or waiters. Those staffing agencies overcharge companies and underpay their staff. eStaffMatch has a database of staff that can choose their own shift and payment, and receive feedback and a rating after every shift. On average organizers pay 23% less than traditional staffing agencies.”
