About the team and idea generation
Javed Faisal is the founder of this startup while Abhimanyu Parivartam and Manasa Danda are the co – founders of this startup. The trio team is currently bootstrapped looking for funding to scale up to a new city and add more services.
The idea was coined after observing how difficult it was for customers to get reliable and prompt service at a reasonable price with utmost work satisfaction, even in metro cities like Hyderabad. All three of the founders come from different backgrounds having graduated from NITW. Before starting up, the founders worked at different MNCs as consultants and data analysts. What inspired them was the need to address issues relating to home improvement.
Present and Future:
Till date, the team has been successful in completing 240 projects, 12,500 repairs with 20 services provided leaving behind approximately 8000 customers satisfied. The future plan of the startup is to grow into a larger business, scale up into more cities. They are also going to hire interior designers, to do on-boarding and renovation works for properties, gated communities and start hotels. They have plans on tying up with more commercials.
