The On Demand Weekly #13

By Guest User 30th April 2015

With Uber promising to deliver food within 10 minutes in NYC, there’s no catching up to that. However, New York City alone is not getting lucky in this case, Uber has extended its food delivery services in Chicago as well with UberEATS.

On similar lines Gett, a competitor to Uber, also plans to offer other on-demand services such as on-demand manicures, housecleaning and pizza delivery. Seems like, nobody has to worry about dinner anymore.

Juggernaut’s Insight:

  • A new website with its sights on becoming the Airbnb for the sea is offering keen boat fans the chance to charter a selection of some of the world’s finest yachts.
  • Uber is going to burn $750 million in capital this year as part of their expansion.
  • Onfleet announced its official launch to offer key infrastructure to businesses providing on-demand delivery services.
