When the pandemic struck in the beginning of 2020, almost all businesses were facing the dilemma of no business or even had to shut down because of COVID rules and regulations. The restaurant industry in particular was one of the worst hit as people in lock-down weren’t allowed to go out to their favourite haunts. Many restaurants without an online presence even had to shut shop. Moved by the plight of these businesses owners, Meher Ali Khan, a vegetable vendor’s son from Goa launched direct online ordering platform with 0% commission for the benefit of small business owners.
His humble background and helping nature inspired him to help other business owners affected by the pandemic because from early age, he has been supporting the family in the business of vegetables & fruits and understands when income is disrupted then entire family is affected.
Meher started his professional career journey by pursuing an MBA at Goa Institute of Management. After working in the finance industry in India for a few years, Meher moved on to the UAE to obtain international exposure. He worked for 5 years before finally venturing into his own in business. When business suffered at the start of the pandemic, he was forced to shift his entire setup online.
But shifting online is not simple for majority of businesses, especially when you have to pay 30% income as commission to online aggregators, this pushed Meher to start something which is simple to use and at the same time without any commission.
