What is the problem you are trying to solve? Can you share with us any insights that led you to believe that this is a big enough problem? 
Farishtey comes handy for every situation where an individual is required to step out from workplace or home be it delivering something or fetching it.
With an eye over the market and general observations, we learned that the service could not be bared to businesses, restaurants, students, housewives, professionals or patients. But with an organised reach , Farishtey could be a household name when it comes to step outside.

Farishtey Delivers not just food and people. It delivers any thing any where within minutes within the city.

Crowdfunding shall enable us to reach larger mass with our errands and delivery services and make our real-time solutions visible to a larger audience.

Another reason to opt of it is to gain a primary experience of fund raising irrespective of the amount.

It would have been a difficult question to answer had it been asked a few months earlier. Now , Farishtey has not just grown from a drawing board business plan to a running business, it have also reached self sustainability wherein the business expenses , operations and all the administrative cost affiliated to the venture are being taken care by the revenue it generates.

Our team is highly motivated, experienced in the field and carries a background of success in other ventures. Our business model in not just structured to do well, but to demonstrate outrageous growth over each quarter which we have been already achieved this quarter. Some of our clients are major brands in FnB industry including Zomato who got on board with us post suspending the services of other vendors and on board till date. Now the investors or any potential allies willing to associate and be a partner in the growth story, shall reap benefits from the fast growing business and value of their share value.

Where can people back your project? 

What would you do after raising funds? 
The applications of the amount raised is subjective to the amount raised. However on achieving a desired capital raise, the funding shall be used for marketing in corporates, tieing up with IT conglomerates for errand services, hiring and empowering the riders through training and development.
However with the first round of funding, Farishtey shall begin services across the city expanding its focus from western city to entire city with a transitional shift from B2C to C to C

What is the revenue model? What is the logic behind it? What is the model you are following – Free / Freemium / Premium etc. ? Explain your thought process. 
3 Main sources of revenue. Its a premium service where our services are charged higher than conventional courier services.

  • Business Clients: Average Order Value Rs. 45 to Rs. 55 per order.(contributes to 65% of the business)
  • Office Clients: Average Order Value Rs. 95 to 105.(Contributes to 20 % of the Business)
