Thugs and thieves are some kind of entrepreneurs. I am a firm believer of people taking the faith in their own hands and creating a future for themselves. That’s why I think it’s not such a bad idea to start prison entrepreneurship programs. Dealers and healers appear to be great salesmen, others have a talent for organising logistics and distribution channels, and some others do miracles with finances… It seems to me that if these people want to get a decent chance in society after they are released and regained freedom, the best way is to take matter into own hands. No job interviews where they will be refused because of their criminal record… As founders of a company, their past doesn’t really matter. It’s all about the things they are going to do. They can prepare and start their business from prison. Maybe a prison VC fund can support this…
You want it and you want it now? With large e-shops offering pretty everything, the sales channels are open 24/7. Only the logistics lag a bit. What if… you could order instant delivery with anything you buy? The ultimate goal is to get a delivery at home within the shortest possible timespan. Amazon’s drone idea is not so bad. The business model could work with different monetising formulas; instant delivery, nightly deliveries, exact delivery, … It could even be implemented with rates that behave like share prices on the stock exchange.
Sometimes you have something that needs to get from point A to point B. Whenever you know someone is going that way, you ask to deliver it for you.
Deliverit is just the same. There are people who are going somewhere and that are willing to take something and delivers it for you. It’s a peer-to-peer courier service.
You can compare it with sponsored placemats, but for boxes.
It’s no secret that e-commerce initiatives are popping up faster than the sun in the morning. It’s also no secret that many of those initiatives don’t reach the end of the day. The logistics part of business is for most startup e-shops a pure cost without much added value for both the e-retailer and their customer.

The idea of branded e-boxes is a solution that helps starting e-commerce business to get free packaging they can use, but also to other e-commerce business’ to do marketing and get their awareness and acquisition of new customers up at affordable rates to an interesting customer segment (namely people who already buy online).
