Outsourcing startup busywork
Pareto helps startup founders eliminate necessary yet repetitive tasks from their day-to-day routines. For a fee, Pareto’s team will do your busywork for you. Examples of these tasks include finding sales leads, sourcing talent, and conducting research. Pareto takes a very personal approach—startup founders are assigned a “Pareto Partner” whom they can reach out to at any time to plan new tasks.

🔮 Our Analysis
Building a startup can be (and often is) a very stressful experience. It generally boils down to one thing—time. A startup founder has only so much time on their hands, yet also has to wear many hats to successfully manage their company. Pareto wants to give back time to founders by cutting out repetition. By outsourcing busywork to trained professionals, founders have more time to focus on what matters. Though relatively new to the scene, the team has bold ambitions. Yao said, “My vision for Pareto is something like Uber for business services. We want to enable entrepreneurs to build high growth startups without having to worry about the overhead of hiring, vetting, and managing freelancers."
