You know that big, long “honey-do” list that neither you nor your honey is ever likely to complete? JobJar wants to help.

The Calgary-based startup, which recently expanded to Edmonton and Winnipeg, is a marketplace for people who need work done around their houses, and “skilled doers” who know how to do that work.

Besides connecting homeowners and contractors to “just get it done,” JobJar also has community-building baked into its business model. As marketing guru Kenzie Dutka says,  “We believe business is about doing great by doing good.”

Learn more about how JobJar walks that talk, and hear how the ATB X Accelerator helped JobJar take off, in this interview with Kenzie:
