Story


News: The Telegraph


My name is Sanjeet kumar, Final Year student , persuing bachelor of technology in computer science and engineering  from IIT(ISM) Dhanbad.
Taking experiences from first lockdown 2020,5 months before we started a startup named " Urban Reach" with idea of building " India's one of the fastest and most reliable supply chain for fresh produce" like vegetable , fruits etc. 

With aim in mind that irrespective of uncomfortable situations like lockdown, rain etc. there should be proper supply of vegetables directly from farmers field to customer. It will prevent spoilage of vegetables in the field and provide proper outflow of farmers produce. And also it will help customer/public to have daily needed items like vegetables with 100% freshness and best quality.

Within these 5 months ,we have touched the milestone of 3000+ android app downloads and 2000+ active  customers in Arrah, Bihar.( For more detail see ppt given in the end) . 

Through experience and hard work we are making proper progress in supply management but  in order to try something new or implement our next plan finance is coming in our way like warehouse , manpower and transport cost
Also with increase in customers we are lacking proper resources( like delivery vehicle, manpower, warehouse) to handle them, that are affecting our brand value in market.

In order to tackle with obstruction that are coming in our way , we need some financial support. I wonder if you could help us.


How it started?
Such was the situation during the first lockdown in 2020
1) People were not getting their daily essential products like milk, vegetables, fruits etc.
However these products were very important for many people like fruits for patients, milk for young children, vegetables for daily food etc.
2) There was no outflow for agricultural products. All the vegetables of the farmers got spoiled in their fields. They used to beg others for their livelihood as there was no other income.
This situation demanded of us to create a proper supply chain for fresh produce from farmers to people.
Hence the "Urban Reach" came into existence. "Urban" means 'Sahar' and "Reach" means 'reach'.
We aim to create India's fastest reliable supply chain for fresh produce i.e. from farmers to customers.



Main Objective:
1)Build India's fastest reliable supply chain for fruits and vegetables from the farm field to the customer's doorstep.
2) Empower farmers with technology.
3) Create employment opportunities for farmers and outflow network for their produce
4) Deliver fresh and healthy products to the public at their doorstep.
5) Provide daily essential products during unforeseen events like lockdown etc.

Working Model:

Forecasting -> Pricing -> Farmer harvesting -> Collection center -> Distribution Center -> Customer  ( for more detail open ppt given below)

Expected Expenses for next 2 month:
Transport facility :50,000
Warehouses and collection center:20,000
Marketing: 10,000
Stock material : 10,000
