The founder himself affirms that they are the first in Asia to launch this sort of platform and he is confident that they will own this niche market.

When we first heard about GuarDia we thought that it was another similar platform that hooks you up with freelancers and helpers. However it is a completely different startup. GuarDia aims to be the “Uber for event crew”. Users can apply for a job as a crew via GuarDia and at the same time event organisers can use the platform to hire crews that meet their particular criteria. Currently GuarDia is only available in Kuching, Sarawak and they will be expanding their services in the near future.
