It was late afternoon in November 2020, South Africa was in lock down. I was taking my usual walk, which I did every day, my break away from the pandemic. Then it hit me, the thought stopped me in my tracks, this idea was so clear, so true, it had to be developed for the people of this world.
Billions of people move around our planet daily, most of them on foot, travelling with public transport. The people of this planet cover boundless distances, reaching a countless number of destinations. How can this movement of people be used to better serve one another and help improve our precious planet? For thousands of years, people transported goods for others, en route to their destinations, dropping off these goods along their travels. Why had this stopped?
Our passion at Gobuddy, is to help people. Gobuddy is a platform of hope. Gobuddy has the potential to give millions of people a legitimate opportunity to earn money by transporting goods during their daily travel and getting paid for it.
The pandemic brought about an unexpected but very important catalyst to make Gobuddy a reality, the speeding up of online adoption and online shopping. Imagine a platform that connects the most widespread, efficient, and effective delivery network on the planet, its people, with entrepreneurs, businesses and their friends.
Gobuddy is the conscious, most efficient delivery solution for our planet. The platform is ethically designed to decrease carbon emissions and compensate people for their travel. Making delivery affordable, ethical, and sustainable.
It has been a privilege to work with the most incredible, talented team of individuals from around the world. Together we have created a solution to help people earn an income with no barriers to entry and provide a delivery solution to reduce carbon emissions.
We believe in people!
