Unlike most other tech entrepreneurs, Rob Bartko started his career getting his hands dirty as a Framer. He saw firsthand the issues surrounding the community.
FixIt, Rob’s first venture into construction technology, gave him his second insight into the possibilities that are out there for improving the lives of tradespeople and construction organizations. After 2 years, a plan was formed and he was ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work. That’s when Rob and Sam Beaudoin officially formed TradesLink, a professional network for the trades, built for tradespeople by tradespeople. With his vision, community insight, and entrepreneurial spirit, Rob continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible for the trades community and the people within.
