TWO University of Zimbabwe students have established an e-commerce start-up named ‘Bring It’.
Tinashe Nyakushena and Delicate Patrick Marume said the idea is to change the online shopping experience by providing a “seamless, user-friendly platform, which caters to the diverse needs of consumers worldwide”.
Tinashe is studying Aeronautical Engineering, while Patrick is doing his final year in Applied Mathematics with Economics.
The platform aims to support smaller retailers with a “comprehensive e-commerce platform that simplifies the entire online selling process.”
‘Bring It’ is seeking investment of US$313 995 to develop the technology and support sales and marketing.
“We are thrilled to present our innovative e-commerce start-up, ‘Bring It.’
“The e-commerce industry has witnessed remarkable growth in recent years, but many small and medium-sized businesses struggle to establish a strong online presence and effectively compete with larger players,” said Tinashe.
He said limited resources, technical challenges and operational complexities hinder their ability to thrive in the digital marketplace.
“To fuel our growth and capitalise on the market opportunity, we are seeking an investment of USD$313 995 spread over a one-year period.
“The funds will be allocated to technology development, sales and marketing initiatives, talent acquisition, and operational expansion. We are confident that this investment will enable us to achieve our strategic objectives and establish Bring it as a dominant player in the e-commerce industry.
“Our cutting-edge technology and user-friendly tools enable merchants to create stunning online stores, manage inventory, process secure payments, and reach a global customer base with ease.”
“Revenue is generated primarily through the sales revenue from these products and services, including but not limited to subscriptions, drop shipping, marketing sales, data monitisation.
“We offer subscription services, where customers pay a recurring fee for regular deliveries or access to exclusive products or services.”
