Born in Israel, Assaf Karmon went on to study computer science at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Following college, he moved to the U.S. and worked for a few startups in New York City before relocating to Boston to work as an engineer at Nokia. Ultimately, his academic pursuits led him to the University of Hawai‘i where he earned his MBA from the Shidler College of Business. While in business school, he met his soon-to-be business partner, Tim Roy.
Building a software business had always enticed Assaf. In their final semester of business school, he and Tim developed a business plan that would eventually launch TurnoverBnB, a premier tool for short-term rental hosts and cleaners to connect and automatically manage their vacation rental cleaning schedules. Since its inception in June 2017, the software company has now expanded to include two additional products within the cleaning technology niche. Taskbird offers a solution for cleaning companies to manage their teams and customers all in one place. Their third product, Moveout.com (launching in early 2022), will provide a marketplace of cleaners to perform move-out cleaning for residential properties.
