Geekatoo is a nationwide in-person tech support platform with 5,000 geeks attacking a $20B market. We find the geeks in your neighborhood, make sure they're knowledgeable and trustworthy, and send them directly to you for 30% off Best Buy's horribly inefficient Geek Squad, which made $3.5B alone last year. We are the Netflix to Geek Squad's Blockbuster.

Despite the fact that I make a living writing about technology, I have absolutely no idea what to do when my computer has a problem. I racked up countless hours with Best Buy’s Geek Squad over the years, including one tearful night at 9 pm right before a college exam. Geekatoo brings the Geeksquad to you. The company cuts out the middlemen and can offer cheaper service, since there is no storefront or inventory to maintain.
9 years ago, Geek Squad lost my laptop for a month and a half. I thought their service and turnaround time was absolutely ridiculous when there were so many smart geeks in our neighborhood. When I was younger, I used to fix computers for my family and friends and knew there was a better solution.
Thus the idea for Geekatoo was born.We eliminate middlemen and offer cheaper service, since there is no storefront or inventory to maintain. The customer places an order online or through our app, and a verified, skill-tested technician arrives at their door. Gone are the days of leaving your computer for weeks at a repair shop, or waiting for hours at home for the TV repariman. Our “Uber of tech support” approach also benefits computer specialists who can make extra money or a living on Geekatoo.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
