Ezra is harnessing the new popularity of the sharing economy to spread knowledge more efficiently. On our online marketplace, buyers enter a question or topic they need help with, and, as with Uber, they are matched instantaneously with a seller on voice and/or video chat. The buyer pays the seller per minute of conversation, and we receive a fraction of the payment. Topics can involve anything from help compiling a Java program, to tips on how to develop a skincare routine for your skin type, to parenting advice.
