LEARN ABOUT SYDEWORK
College Cleaners LLC. started in 2018 with a UW Oshkosh student passing around flyers to earn some extra money in order to pay for his schooling. He helped many different people and had a vision to help out college students and people at home everywhere. This vision has became what is - SydeWork.
Colin Milligan, Current Business Owner of SydeWork, partnered with Dr. Zaid Altahat, University of Wisconsin-Parkside Computer Science professor, in April of 2019 to start the development of a mobile app to scale this vision to every town or city with a university nearby. This mobile app will serve as a platform to provide college students with flexible jobs, which will work around their school schedule. The app also serves as a place to help out the surrounding community, by providing them with a hardworking labor force to get their "at home" tasks completed.
Many of our customers cannot complete tasks for many different reasons:
No time available from their full-time job
Physically fatiguing or unable due to age, disability, surgery, etc.
Too busy taking care of children
Out of town on vacation
Do not have the knowledge on how to complete a specific task
Do not know of anyone who can help
