‘SAJILO SERVICES PVT. LTD’. ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF THEIR NEW PLATFORM ALLOWING USERS TO BOOK ESSENTIAL SERVICES ‘ONLINE’.
GANGTOK, June 24: The start-up ecosystem in Sikkim has seen a massive growth over the years, there are ambitious founders and creative startup teams everywhere, keen to find unique ways to find a great product/service-market fit and solve the problems of a customer and contributing more to it; Sajilo Services, founded by three local entrepreneurs, Devesh, Sewandeep & Nischal aims to craft a new way of organizing the tourism & the service sector as a whole. While both tourism and service sector in Sikkim are still reeling from the effects of the COVID pandemic, the adoption of digital services has been revved over Pan- India.
Meanwhile, the service sector in Sikkim is highly unorganized and inaccessible; also, there are several services that people are unaware of, the process of tedious phone calls/mails to book a service is a terrible experience as a customer, and moreover, there is very less to almost no transparency of prices in the market altogether.
Sajilo Services is providing a one-stop solution to all of these problems through online bookings of Tour Packages, Homestays, Photographers, Bike Rentals, Gym Memberships, Adventure Sports and much more via their android application. Sajilo Services presents its tech-based approach to book services from the comfort of your home, within the ease of your fingertips.
With the advent of an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Sikkim, many youngsters have come up with numerous new ventures in Sikkim, not only the youth, but people of all demographics have been keen to start up a startup. It is with zest and zeal that the Sikkim government have also held a great deal of stakes in the budding new ecosystem. With schemes like One Family- One Entrepreneur in tandem with policies like One Family One Job, the government have extended a helping arm for the ecosystem.
Incubation foundation like, AIC-SMU Technoloogy Business Incubation Foundation (AIC-SMUTBI), which is an Incubator supported by AIM, NITI Aayog, Government of India has been selected by Startup India, Department of Promotion of Industries and Internal Trade (DPIIT) under Ministry of Commerce and Industries, Government of India to provide financial assistance to startups for proof of concept, prototype development, product trials, market entry, and commercialisation of Product.
Currently, there are 769 startups registered with Startup India Portal out of which only 31 incubator has so far been listed in the portfolio of Startup India SeedFund Scheme. AIC-SMUTBI is one of the latest additions to their portfolio.
AIC-SMUTBI supports startup at their early stage of the venture and is sector agnostic. It currently has 73 startups from all the states of North East India and also other parts of the country working in domains like Defence, Aerospace, Agriculture, EdTech, e-Mobilty, FinTech, FMCG, HealthCare, IOT/ML/AL, Tourism etc.
With advent of such incubators, with government intervention and all the strides that local companies and start-ups are taking to build a sustainable entrepreneur ecosystem, strides are definitely taken in the right path.
Sajilo services not only aims to streamline the service sector but it is also encouraging small business owners in Sikkim to scale up by giving them an opportunity to present their services online and helping them in creating a brand recognition. It also provides a great opportunity for the self- employed individuals of the State to use this platform to scale & reform their business.
Sajilo services is also very proud to announce to be a part of South Asia’s leading transaction advisory company ‘ALSiSAR IMPACT’ as their incubator which wouldn’t have been possible without the encouragement & support from their mentor and advisor Anuj Sharma.
Sajilo Services believes that startups do not and cannot exist in a vacuum. They are born in a specific context as parts of an entity – a network, a system – much bigger than themselves. Entrepreneurs are always supported by a community of people/organizations and other startups that surround them. Sajilo Services strongly supports the start-up ecosystem which is growing rapidly and believes that the same amount of support is reverted back to it.
