Oisin Hanrahan was a 19-year old college student in Ireland when he decided to become a real estate developer in Eastern Europe. After scouring various cities on weekend breaks from Trinity College in Dublin, Hanrahan started buying and renovating apartments in Budapest. While renovating a series of apartments around the city, Oisin found it difficult to find quality handymen he could trust to get the job done. There was no easy way. A few years later, while attending Harvard Business School, Oisin and classmate, Umang Dua, realized the same was true in the U.S. They developed Handy to fill that void, with the goal of building the easiest, most convenient way for busy people everywhere to book household services.
