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.
