NewsOrg’s Dan Blacharski recently sat down with Washos CEO and founder Bertrand Patriarca to talk about the gig economy, platforms where individuals take more control over their career path.

Already, employment in the gig economy is growing faster than traditional payroll employment, according to the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution.

“While there are of course pros and cons to gig economy employment, many workers are drawn to the flexibility of being able to work during times that suit their own schedule,” said Patriarca.

Washos’ Bertrand Patriarca reveals what drew him to the LA tech scene

On November 2014, Bertrand Patriarca arrived from Paris after having sold his previous company in Paris.

The company hit the ground running, and in the past few months, the team has expanded the operations of the on-demand car detailing service to new markets,

“Los Angeles is not a single city — it’s a conglomerate of dozens of neighborhoods, each with its own lifestyle, spirit and influence. LA is a place where you can meet the world and discover the richness of hundreds of different cultures. Don’t be afraid of distance, because LA is a constant journey,” says Patriarca.
