Backyard Gig

How It Started

Backyard Gig was created in 2020 by University of Delaware student, Suryanuj Gupta, with the goal of connecting students with their communities by giving them opportunities to complete projects/gigs that their fellow community members might need help with. Our mission is to bridge the gap between students and the local community so that they can help each other and achieve more together.

When Suryanuj “Shaun” Gupta, a University of Delaware sophomore majoring in computer science, was a freshman, he took a class in entrepreneurship. One ongoing assignment was to carry around a notebook and write down problems he saw in day-to-day life.
“One problem that I was consistently seeing was that there’s a lot of college students in need of money who don’t necessarily have time to get a part-time jobs because they have classes to go to, clubs, or they’re athletes,” Gupta said.
