25992599a1

Entrepreneurship is not only about value creation in terms of money. It is something about returning back to society while earning for your company. “Deliver With Me” is a very good concept which benefits environment , E-Commerce and regular Air passengers.

What is Deliver With Me?
DeliverWithMe is a platform for crowdsourcing Ecommerce Delivery. Travellers deliver ecommerce packages. Ecommerce companies incentivize travellers through coupons, discounts, vouchers and freebies.

How it works:
1.Traveller posts his trip on portal easily or forwards trip confirmation email from makemytrip, cleartrip etc to postmytrip@deliverwith.me
2. Ecommerce retailer packages his goods and hands over to deliverwithme. Deliverwithme finds travellers and hands over the package to traveller at airport.
3. Traveler Checks in Baggage and Lands in Destination.
4. Package handed over to deliverwithme staff at the dropoff point at the destination airport.
5. Deliverwithme does last mile delivery to ecommerce shopper.

What about security?
1. Traveller is aware of what he is carrying.
2. Trusted E-Commerce Packages from trusted sources( as good as new and control over product categories)
3. Verified Traveler Profiles
4. Package Theft/Loss Guarantee
5. Package screened before handover to traveller.
6. 24/7 Fanatic Support

Win-Win-Win-Win Situation
1. Ecommerce Retailer sends his packages at cheaper rates than traditional courier.
2. Ecommerce Shopper’s shopping bag takes the next flight to his house. (Same day and next day delivery facility)
3. Traveller (Carrier/Courier) gets incentivized through rewards, discounts, vouchers, coupons and freebies.
4. DeliverWithMe takes a commission and charges ecommerce retailer for last mile delivery.
5. Reduced Carbondioxide emissions since all flights travel full capacity and packages dont take a seperate flight.

It was a short description about the company, let see what is inside the founder of the startup , Which enabled him to start this kind of startup-

Interview with Anand, the founder of “Deliver with me…”

Techaloo: How the entrepreneurship journey started? Or who inspired you to start business?
Anand: I honestly don’t remember when it all started. I’ve always been fascinated with running a successful business because to me it was all about taking responsibility, getting out and talking to a lot of people and more importantly convincing them about your idea. I’ve always thought that my life is about selling, be it selling a business or selling myself. It’s only when you do that can you dream about changing the world.

Techaloo: When did you start the journey?
Anand: My journey started way back in college. I used to learn by doing small freelance web design projects. But that’s when I used to learn technology. Once I passed out of college I realized there’s much more to a startup that tech. I started interacting with a lot of people and learnt to run a business successfully.

Techaloo: You are among the winners of Launch-Pad
a.) What is the importance of it for you?
b.) What do they see in an idea?
Anand: Oh, The Startup Festival was an overwhelming experience. We thought that we had the next big idea. But I realized it wasn’t enough if only we thought so. We wanted to find out if it really was so by reaching out to a big audience. What better platform to do this than at the Startup Festival Launchpad in front of a big crowd of early adopters, investors, mentors and startup gurus.
They look for a high level of disruption. Ideas that have high scope to scale. (All my college friends who, like me, are stuggling to find the meaning of scaling a tech startup can email me for gyaan)

Techaloo: Have you got any kind of funding?
Anand: We have been approached by a lot of investors after our LaunchPad Demo. We wish to completely validate our model and get traction before we can think about raising funds.

Techaloo: Share some info about the founders.(please mention the qualifications also ).
Anand: I don’t think qualifications define a business. I think it’s about getting out and making things work.

Techaloo: What was the vision mission of the company? What exactly you wanted to do when you started your business?
Anand: We see a broken courier business and are trying to fix it. Our mission is to get things from point A to point B with the highest level of efficiency and speed with least impact on the environment.We want to manage logistics at multiple levels, from ultra-local to international, and deliver within 24 hours to the customers doorstep.

Techaloo: What kind of difficulties you had faced while starting/doing business?
Anand: Trust Levels are very low. One person doing something wrong leads to a whole country of people not doing things right.

Techaloo: What are your future plans? Or now what is your vision for next five years?
Anand: Over the next five years we plan to reach out to every nook and corner of the country. Our business model supports reaching out to smaller towns and villages too. We want to focus on making the system super secure and super efficient.

Techaloo: You are currently operating for Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. Do you have any plans to expand it?
Anand: Our focus for this year will be on metros. Once we have an air-tight system in place we will reach out to tier 2 – tier 3 cities and towns. We are also starting very soon in Moscow, Russia.

Techaloo: It is generally said that “India doesn’t have a good eco-system for entrepreneurs ”, Do you agree with this?
Anand: Totally Disagree – The ecosystem is in place. Get on board before it’s too late.

Techaloo: What will be your advice/suggestion for new entrepreneurs for starting new business?
Anand:
1. Get out and startup – Dream about setting things right, and don’t worry about what’s going to stop you. You will surely get there if you believe in yourself and your idea. Start! It’s not enough to dream, get down to execution.

2. Wabi Sabi – Most important lesson I have learnt – Things will never be perfect. Make do with what you have and focus on functionality.

3. Ship early and ship often – Don’t wait for things to happen. Make your MVP and get it out there and reach out to as many people as you can with it. Iterate – Learn what people have to say and keep making small changes often to adapt to it. People will love you for it.

Techaloo: Few words about techaloo.com?
Anand: I really like what you guys are doing for college students. It all starts off in college and you’re reaching out to student entrepreneurs in the right way. Thanks a lot for helping me reach out to them too.

Are you Students needing help/startup advice?
Are you an e-commerce startup who needs fast and cost effective shipping?
Are you traveler between Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore: who wish to be early adopters and get incentivized and win rewards?
Do you want to be a incentive Partner? Currently their partners are TaxiForSure and TravelKhana.com. They are looking out for partners who wish to reach out to people at a reduced cost of acquisition.

    This DeliverWithMe is one big scam. People, beware. Who knows, what all unhygienic parcels you will be made to carry and in return get some trashy reward points, which are basically worth Peanuts.
