Two Brother’s Build A Business Fixing Shattered I-Phone Screens!

Two Brother's Build A Business Fixing Shattered I-Phone Screens!Scott and Corey Schard were underemployed in 2012 when the brothers—after many hours of brainstorming business ideas—fixed upon a way to earn money by making life easier for busy New Yorkers cursing existence after shattering their iPhone screens. They launch Gotham iPhone. In this golden era of come-to-you services, the brothers started making on-demand house and office calls in Manhattan with nothing but their bicycles, messenger bags and, of course, iPhone parts. Gotham fixes iPhones on the spot at $90 to $180 a pop in about 10 minutes, barring water damage and warped frames. Three years later, the brothers, along with two part-time employees, repair an average of 30 to 40 cellphones per weekday, capitalizing on the popular devices’ inherent breakability. They are among a slew of entrepreneurs offering a similar repair service, creating an opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to fix the smartphones—in person. (The brothers do not work on ­Androids.)
