Company Summary

We are Instacart for the world's most densely populated country -- Bangladesh. While people think that Bangladesh is a poor country, it is actually one of the fastest growing countries in the world. We began by selling groceries in Dhaka ($5 billion market), the capital city, as we feel that this will create a sticky customer base. We will then leverage this base to launch other categories (Amazon), and then tap into other verticals (payments).
