Company Overview


Did you know that for the past 40 years there has been a decline of teens participating in the workforce?

Enter Skratch - A Dallas based mobile platform and gig economy marketplace that connects teens with local adult neighbors (and eventually businesses) to accomplish task-based work.

The app provides streamlined payment, tracks work history and creates a first resume for teen users. Skratch also validates performance through a two-way rating system, and offers the critical features to deliver safe transactions between parties.


Simple registration. Convenient scheduling. Easy payment.


Customizable, task-based jobs.

This platform is tackling a key issue for us and giving teens a new way to think about work. It just makes sense that a mobile app connects them to opportunity.

Skratch is smart. They take social impact seriously and truly understand what it means to be a double bottom business, profit with a purpose.

The day my daughter turned 14 she downloaded skratch and made over 80 dollars in her first 2 weeks. I didn't realize how earning would boost her confidence and give her some financial literacy. She has found something new about herself that she is great with kids.

This app is awesome. I use it often because I work from home and have twin fourth graders. Whatever I need help with it seems like skratch has teens that can assist. I don't know what I did before having it on my phone.
