Solving technology frustrations in the home. On-demand, in-home, technology help.
Based in San Francisco, Eden’s model was to hire college students and part-time or semi-retired technicians to serve as its “wizards,” the name cofounders Joe Du Bey and Kyle Wilkinson, who’d previously cofounded InternMatch, coined for their tech support staff.
On-demand office management startup Eden was only an idea in March of 2015 – that’s right, 9 months ago; Eden is a 9-month-old startup out of San Francisco, CA that has had a killer first year. Within a month they had raised over $1 million, and shortly after that they were accepted into Y Combinator.
Eden, the on-demand tech help company that emerged from Y Combinator over the summer, is expanding from San Francisco down to Mountain View. "After quite strong growth with our new business focus in San Francisco, we decided to go after one of the best markets in the world in the South Bay." CEO Joe Du Bey told me.

Eden, the on-demand tech help service launched out of Y Combinator, has today announced a new chunk of cash to be added to its previously announced (rolling) seed round. This brings Eden’s total funding to $3.3 million, with this most recent $2 million adding to the $1.3 million the company received in July.
