Hey there, I am Souradeep. First, I have a question for you. Have you ever been to a grocery store before? If the answer is “yes”, keep watching. When I used to go grocery shopping, my friends often asked me if I could also buy some groceries for them. Being a good friend, I always bought their groceries and dropped it to them. When I started charging them, they continued to use my service. Then I realized that I could start an app-based grocery delivery business! Thats why I’m creating Bascart - a grocery sharing service. Nowadays, people find it difficult to maintain a work-life balance. If the people who go grocery shopping shop for their neighbours, it would help both parties save time or money. We will succeed because there is a rising demand for our service. When I asked my friends, 77% said that they would earn money shopping groceries in their spare time, and just over a quarter said that they would use our app to order groceries. Bascart will earn revenue from in-app advertisements, and commission from orders placed through it. Our target customers would be middle-aged people who would order groceries, and anyone (esp. teenagers) who will earn money by shopping for them. Let's take a look at a quick demo. Nick wants to order groceries. She searches for groceries, and places the order. She can also chat with her shopper, Joe, for modifications. Joe shops for himself and his client. While returning home, Joe delivers Nick’s order. Nick is very satisfied, so she tips Joe for his service. Thanks for watching! If you want to know more, visit
