Delivery Start-Ups Are Back Like It’s 1999, who's actually 'delivering" Black by block #localdelivery

Delivery Start-Ups Are Back Like It’s 1999, who's actually 'delivering" Black by block #localdelivery | Brooklyn By Design | Scoop.it
Silicon Valley wants to save you from ever having to leave your couch. Will it work this time around?
Bonnie Sandy's insight:
Delivery Start-Ups Are Back Like It’s 1999,  who's actually 'delivering" Black by block #localdelivery | 
Launched in January 2013 by May 2014 www.Doordash.com had raised $19.7 Million in 3 Rounds from 12 Investors from a site they set up in  1hr.  Together with similar start-ups with names like Caviar and SpoonRocket this niche  has recently raised half a billion dollars in investment. 

In 20 11 after attending  photohackday in 2011 and I met  and learned about  Ordr.in  
 being a nontechnical part of a hack gives me time to ask  questions and speak to the  Developer Evangelist! In speaking to Ordr.in, I realized early on that delivery would be a problem for the food ordering service.  

“the one piece of the puzzle they have failed to eliminate is the hardest part of logistics, and the one Deighton says makes the entire business model unravel: the last few miles of the journey, getting small-ticket orders to far-flung houses.” As pointed out in this NYtime article  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/24/magazine/delivery-start-ups-are-back-like-its-1999.html?_r=0

I went to a local business specializing in street marketing  and uniquely suited to this- I discussed this with the ceo, pointing out the opportunity and  the ease for pivoting his existing business.  I am not sure whether or not he could “envision” the potential, or was not convinced or simply not willing the take the risk. The end result is that companies like his are missing out. These are jobs that can be brought to our communities. I can guarantee he has not raised 1 million dollars.As  the next wave of tech product will be in those “hard to penetrate problem area”.  Local mom and pop as well a black businesses are reluctant to, or cannot take time take the 3-4 months to attend accelerator programs, yet they have the infrastructure and knowledge… and network.   


Niche- Delivery- Mobile, Small and Medium Businesses, Local, Logistics, Local Businesses -

New York City’s technologists, hackers, thinkers and creators have emerged as the most exciting innovators in the world. The Northside Trade Show (powered by DELL) is the annual event that showcases the best of this community as it continues to grow and revolutionize society.

Housed in an epic 50,000-square-foot tent in Brooklyn’s McCarren Park on Thursday, June 12 and Friday, June 13, the Trade Show marks the kickoff to Northside — a week-long discovery festival for innovation, music, film and art, that drew nearly 100,000 people in attendance last year — and runs alongside the Northside Innovation Conference, featuring panel discussions, workshops, hackathons and VIP events led by industry influencers, tech gurus and startup superstars.

@Clifenews - Who is the #caribbeaneditor in charge at Caribbean Life News and why it matters?

@Clifenews - Who is the #caribbeaneditor in charge at Caribbean Life News and why it matters? | Brooklyn By Design | Scoop.it

The selection of the next Editor should be one of authenticity, transparency and respect. That individual must have a keen grasp on issues relating to Caribbean nationals, and an understanding of regional and local politics.  

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

I became aware that Mr. Kenton Kirby, the Editor of Caribbean Life News, NYC’s largest distributed publication targeting and more importantly read by not just Caribbean Americans but many others in the tri-state area, was retiring after 20 years.


I anxiously opened their digital  issue to see the changes reflected in the masthead and have been left extremely confused and concerned.


So, if Mr. Kirby is NOT the editor, then who is? And, what exactly does his “Emeritus” status, entail?


Who exactly is at the helm? Letters to the Editor, ask us to address letters to Mr. Kenton Kirby.  Will he in fact be responding to these letters? Is Kevin Williams now the acting Editor? And if so, why has this not been announced? Or has someone else, say the Associate Publisher, Mr. Richard D'Onofrio been given the role of editor? If this is the case, when will the Caribbean Life newspaper readers be officially informed?


Why does this matter?


This paper is the main platform of access addressing issues of culture, art, politics, business and education and connects those of Caribbean Heritage to news in NY and global Caribbean issues.


Close to elections the Editor plays a big role in endorsing the candidates on behalf of the paper whether explicitly or implicitly.  The paper publishes articles that spotlight businesses. It is in the interest of every business in the area to which they distribute. The paper has a responsibility to promote education and youth issues. It is in the interest of every parent, teacher and youth organizer. It is in the interest of every homeowner, block association and real estate professionals that the paper truly reflects the demographics and economic growth of their communities. And, if all you care about if fete and Labor Day carnival then this is the one paper that has in the past highlighted Caribbean cultural affairs. It is in the interest of every partygoer, massman and promoter.


The selection of the next Editor should be one of authenticity, transparency and respect. That individual must have a keen grasp on issues relating to Caribbean nationals, and an understanding of regional and local politics.  

 

If like me you have concerns,  tag your social media post
