The funding scenario in Pakistan is looking better than ever! Start-ups especially in the tech sector are getting a great deal of recognition from local and international investors. Among these companies, Batoor – Pakistan’s first on-demand delivery marketplace, has also managed to get the attention that it deserves. The company has just raised funds in pre-seed funding from Astore Partners.
Batoor is Pakistan’s first on-demand delivery marketplace which was launched in 2009 in a small village of Shahmansor, Swabi. What is inspiring about this startup is that the founder of this startup started his venture with only Rs. 500. The founder, Sanad Khan designed his own pamphlets, made copies, and distributed them door-to-door. He led Batoor single-handedly and functioned as the CEO, delivery guy, marketing manager, and operations manager.
Since its launch, Batoor has been able to complete more than 20, 000 orders. It has more than a dozen employees under its wings who are locals. Moreover, it generates more than Rs. 4 million in revenue. Batoor envisions digitizing the local food and retail industry, delivering their products to the consumers, saving consumers precious time and money, and creating job opportunities for domestic people.
