The on-demand marketplace, getting services to your door in 60 minutes or less
Founder: Rohan Sinclair Luvaglio
Founded: 2013 (launched 2014)
Frustrated about not being able to get what he needed, when he needed it, founder of BIZZBY Rohan Sinclair Luvaglio had a simple solution – an on-demand services marketplace allowing users to book and receive what they want within 60 minutes.
Tapping in to the growing on-demand trend, the platform connects users to the professional service they need nearest to their postcode – including babysitters, handymen, cleaners, beauty therapists and even ‘heroes’, who’ll do anything from running errands to assembling furniture. Currently only in London, the mobile first platform has more than 100,000 users, and while there are other on-demand delivery services, BIZZBY claims to be the only app of its kind to give you “services to your door in 60 minutes or less.”
With $10m in VC funding, the company will capitalise on its current 20% month-on-month growth and launch in five further cities in the next year. No stranger to launching and running a successful business, Sinclair Luvaglio listed his internet agency business on AIM for $60m when he was just 18. With BIZZBY set to turnover £5m in 2015, and Sinclair Luvaglio’s track record, the app’s unique and speedy approach to service needs across several industries should see it quickly gain traction across the UK.
