BOSTA

Arabnet - The Quarterly - - Entrepreneurship -

Founded by Mo­hamed Ez­zat, Bosta is an on-de­mand de­liv­ery plat­form with a B2C fo­cus that al­lows busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als to send, re­ceive and track pack­ages less than 10 kg, in a time that does not ex­ceed two hours, and with in­sur­ance up to 5000 EGP. For busi­nesses to get started with Bosta, they sim­ply need to fill in a signup form, and once ver­i­fied can start us­ing the ser­vices. Busi­nesses re­ceive ac­cess to a sim­ple dash­board that will al­low them to re­quest, man­age and track their de­liv­er­ies. More­over, they can com­mu­ni­cate with the de­liv­ery per­son or ‘Star’ along the way at any point. Cus­tomers also re­ceive a SMS with a track­ing link to track their de­liv­ery.

The startup is cur­rently work­ing with more than 100 com­pa­nies. In July, Bosta re­ceived fund­ing from Cairo An­gels, a global net­work of an­gel in­vestors, and plan to use the in­vest­ment to in­crease its prod­uct of­fer­ing and ex­pand across the MENA re­gion start­ing with the UAE. Ear­lier in March, Bosta also re­ceived an undis­closed amount of funds from Dubai-based Numa Cap­i­tal which they used to hire more peo­ple to han­dle op­er­a­tions, more de­liv­ery men to han­dle cus­tomers’ de­mands and in­ten­sify their mar­ket­ing strat­egy.
