    New York City-based Handybook, a startup that enables quick household service provider bookings, today announced that prominent angel investor and TechStars NYC co-founder David Tisch has participated in its recent $2 million+ seed financing round.

    Tisch has worked with over 50 startups over the years through the BoxGroup fund, including the likes of GroupMe, Fab.com and Boxee.

    General Catalyst and Highland Capital Partners have also invested in Handybook.

    By negotiating a price and presenting service providers’ availability directly on its website, the fledgling company says it eliminates the challenge of searching for and booking a household service provider.

    The seed funding will serve to support Handybook’s growth, hire more employees and build out its platform.
