Biswas is glad for those who have not lived in Gurugram. The reason: “When I was living there, it was a big pain to do mundane daily chores. The distances are insane.” The idea of his delivery startup germinated from his own daily problems. “I had a thought on how to solve such daily issues with a click of a button.” The outcome: Dunzo, a hyperlocal delivery startup launched in 2015 as a WhatsApp beta service that allowed users to outsource their delivery needs within a city. In the past few years, (from left) Aggarwal, Jha, Biswas, and Suri have built a company present across seven cities and estimate they will clock two million transactions by this month. Dunzo says 10% of its top users use the service about 22 times a month. The Bengaluru-based firm is backed by Google, the Internet giant’s first direct investment in an Indian startup. Other key investors include Blume Ventures and Aspada Investments Advisors. The startup has raised $36 million in funding so far.
