Tilak Mehta is like any other Mumbai teenager. The 13-year-old attends a suburban school studying in Class VIII, and rues about his father coming home from work late and tired.
But the similarities stop there. Tilak is a budding entrepreneur who has founded a logistics start-up, sold the idea to a banker and convinced him to quit the job and join him as the Chief Executive, and also roped in the famed Dabbawalas to help him with the last-mile distribution.“Last year, I wanted a few books from the other end of the city urgently.
My father came home tired after a day’s work, and so I could not ask him and there was nowhere to go,” said Tilak.This is when the idea of having a start-up dedicated to carrying papers and small parcels within the megapolis for assured intra-day delivery struck him. The idea was presented to his father Vishal, who was quickly convinced that this idea needed to be pursued. As Chief Executive of Rushabh Sealink, a logistics company, his father could have helped. But Tilak went through the grind, researching the concept and running a beta for four months before formally launching it today.
