Deliverus Kenya is a mobile application providing supermarket shopping convenience in Nairobi, Kenya. Deliverus links shoppers to supermarket inventories where they can order goods and get deliveries in approximately 30 minutes using our network of cyclists and roller blade skaters. Deliverus is also focused on social inclusion. Thus, deliveries are made entirely by former street children of age.

Deliverus recently launched but registered 156 downloads on its first day in the market. This despite our budget limitations on our digital marketing but rather due to the rampant word of mouth marketing by our field marketers. We are currently in search of funds to revamp this marketing bit as it still presents a massive constraint given that we already have a minimum viable product. This will allow the set-up of monster analytics tool, higher social media reach and the employment of both Customer Relationship Management tools and Search Engine Optimization.
However, the growth of our delivery network has been massive. We have had 72 people incorporated into the system in less than a month since we started the quest for delivery personnel. This demand has made our delivery cost cheap and efficient as every rider wants to have the most deliveries they can make per day.
