High Concept Statement


Postmates/Seamless for NYU Students and Faculty

 

Status Quo


Currently, students and faculty have to meet the person delivering goods to them in the lobby or outside of whatever facility they are at, forcing them to give up their spot or go down many floors to receive their goods. This is a problem both students and faculty face.

 

Competition

Several companies like Postmates, Seamless, and Grubhub offer delivery options, but they charge high delivery fees and also are not permitted to enter NYU facilities.

 

Solution

Customers will be able to order food from restaurants, and have it directly delivered to them anywhere on campus, by an NYU student with an id who can access all facilities. By charging a cheaper rate, and delivering directly to customers, customers will choose my service.

 

Revenue Model

I will charge a flat fee of $3.99, and eventually make deals with restaurants to promote them on my app.
