About this event

After serving 4 years in the United States Marine Corp and working on his Bachelor's in Entrepreneurship, Steven Werner has accomplished a lot in terms of professional growth. He has not only built a successful, locally owned business, but has proven his skills in the areas of leadership, integrity, teamwork, and business management.

Lawn Buddy is an on-demand lawn care service, that connects lawn care providers, "lawntrepreneurs", to homeowners, via a user-friendly app and website. The company aims to create value for both the homeowners and the lawn care providers. Lawn Buddy will improve the overall customer service experience for homeowners, by providing convenient and quality lawn care at an affordable price. The on-demand business model allows users the flexibility of only getting lawn care when they want it, thus liberating them from the constraints of a fixed weekly or bi-weekly schedule. Since lawn growth is inconsistent, varying on seasons, amount of rain and other factors, the on-demand accessibility will result in savings for users. Lawn Buddy’s efficient app will give users back their precious time to spend on activities that they enjoy. By utilizing lawn care providers from Lawn Buddy, homeowners will also reduce their risk of bodily injury.

Lawn Buddy’s market-place driven, mobile location-based technology platform will help lawn care providers make their business grow, by enabling them to focus on providing superior lawn care service without having to be slowed down by details such as managing customers, giving estimates, billing, scheduling and marketing. This provides small crew operations an opportunity to expand their customer base and gain a steady income. Lawn Buddy will also provide the “lawntrepreneurs” with training workshops, safety seminars and other incentives to help increase their success.

Come hear Steven's story and hear about Lawn Buddy's history, as well as their future.
