Thirteen-year-old child’s startup, target of 100 crores revenue by 2020
Thirteen-year-old Tilak Mehta is like other children of his age. He also studies in class 8 and also complains for his father coming late. However, apart from these similarities, he has a speciality other than those of his own age. He has started a logistics startup and his goal is to achieve Rs 100 crore revenue by 2020.
The young entrepreneur is an 8th grader at Garodia International School in Mumbai. What got him thinking was an incident where he forgot some books at his uncle’s place, and wished there was a service that would help him get those books couriered to himself immediately.
“I was thinking about this for days and when I saw a dabbawala in my building, the idea for Papers N Parcel struck. I always marvelled at the swiftness and the efficiency of the dabbawala’s food delivery network, and I wondered if the network could be used to allow deliveries of even non-food items,” he recounts.
He said that through this incident, he got the urge to start a startup which could carry out the papers and small parcels within the city within a single day. He shared his views with his father, who understood this need.
Chief Executive Officer of Startup, Ghanshyam Parekh said that the target of the company is to capture 20 per cent of the logistics market within the city and get revenue of 100 crores by 2020.
