happybuy

Saipraveen Karamsetty, an engineering graduate based out of Chilakaluripet - a small town in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh, was bored of the regular desk job and wanted to something different. His yearning for excitement led him to launch his startup Happybuy.

Notably, Chilakaluripet is a small town and so small that obviously no big players in online grocery & food delivery segment are putting their hands in it and this what where a mediocre startup like HappyBuy comes in to tap what is untapped and of course risky as well.

THE IDEA


Saipraveen had once discussed this problem with a bank employee while he was getting some work done. Days later this struck him again and he seriously started working towards the idea. In his quest to find something beyond his desk work he struck gold in the form of his startup Happybuy. They built a platform connecting the customer and the retailers. It is an online platform catering to your needs. They sell all daily need products like vegetables, fruits, branded products, restaurant food and much more. They have recently introduced handy services like AC, fridge, washing machine at the customer's location as well.
