ToDoolie is an early stage startup that works to connect students willing to work and homeowners who need extra help around the house. Through our website, homeowners can book a job and ToDoolie will connect them with the students they need to get it done.
We are composed of three co-founders Sergio, Jose, and Armando, as well as our lead developer, Darren, and our summer intern, Frances. Because of our condensed size, we can adapt very quickly and have been able to make significant progress since our pilot launch in July of last year.
Sergio Rodriguez - Founder/Instigator
Sergio has a degree in Biomedical Physics and is currently finishing a masters in Biomedical Engineering. Sergio has over 7 years of experience in the casual labor industry and a clear understanding of where the market is headed. He paid his way through college and graduated debt free doing gigs. Some of Sergio’s previous leadership experience includes being Founder and President of Timmy Global Health WSU , and President of the WSU Grappling Club. Sergio manages operations, acts as the main point of communication, and puts work into every facet of ToDoolie.

He ran the social media marketing campaign for Macomb Community College and attracted 700 followers within 3 weeks. He is currently pursuing his degree in business management at Wayne State University. His strengths lie with interpersonal skills, sales, field strategy, and customer discovery. Jose also manages the logistics of finances, invoicing, tax forms, and outgoing payments.
