What is Paperound?

Paperound connects busy startup founders with capable UK university students who can lend a hand on company tasks.

Paperound exists to reduce any barriers for a student and a business to work together.

As a Tasker, you get booked by the hour to help startups achieve their objectives.

We welcome students from any field of study that are eager to build their experience in the working world
