Mumbai based errand-running and same-day delivery service GetMyPeon received its first round of seed funding of Rs. 1.5 crore (approx. 250,000 USD) after being in the business for over two & a half years.
GetMyPeon started its operations in Mumbai in July 2012 with a mere capital of Rs. 20,000/- offering highly customizable nature of services. From delivering vada-pav from a specific food stall to a client waiting at the airport to accompanying a client’s grandparent to the doctor’s clinic, they themselves discovered a new use of their service every single day. Today GetMyPeon provides services to 1000+ active clients by gaining high levels of customer satisfaction to their business operating in Mumbai, Thane & Vashi.
“GetMyPeon was started with a simple vision of running errands for individuals and helping them with their daily chores. This has now turned into a reliable, affordable, dependable and the most available service to get anything personal to official done in the city. Weather its picking up cakes, parcel, gifts, wedding cards, couriers to taking your car / bike for servicing or receiving guests from the Airport/Railway station; we offer it all.”
The funds received will essentially be invested in infrastructure; i.e. technology (frontend & backend), vehicles, hiring more executives on field, mobile platform and geographical expansion.
