- ByStartupStory | March 20, 2021
The number of ambulances as per the requirement is much less. In many scenarios, we see that the government ambulances or local ambulances cannot reach at a proper time. So, to solve this problem and eradicate this crisis we developed Goaid app.”- Rakesh Kumar, Co-founder of Goaid in an exclusive interview with Startup Story Media
Rakesh while working in a Software company in Italy observed that in almost every sector in India, companies are getting investors, every sector is getting a touch of professionalism. But in case of Ambulance services there are drawbacks in terms of maintaining punctuality and professional outlook whose ultimate result is the loss of lives. With these constant drawbacks hovering over Rakesh’s mind, he with a team of 10 to 11 developed and launched their Goaid app in 2019.
“There are contact numbers for every sector such as police, fire and even ambulance. But the number of ambulances as per the requirement is much less. In many scenarios, we see that the government ambulances cannot reach at a proper time. So, to solve this problem and eradicate this crisis we developed Goaid app and launched it for the betterment of the people and society as whole.”- Rakesh
Goaid: Go and Help
Goaid was launched with a motive to help the needy people with the complete service package of an ambulance and even with the services needed till hospitalization. Along with this the services provided by Goaid are completely upgraded in terms of punctuality and professionalism.
“We give an upgraded service quality with staunch commitment towards time. In hardly 10 min we provide our service of making ambulances available at the correct place. The connectivity of ambulances is very strong at the moment in Goaid. We have provided our service to 6000+ patients in both Jaipur and Delhi.”- tells Rakesh.
Rakesh also added that in the upcoming years they have some huge plans which will need investments for the execution. One of them is to expand the branches of Goaid in 110+ cities along with adding all the medical facilities.
Major challenge that Rakesh and his team of Goaid is facing is to make the people aware about availability of these kinds of services and simultaneously reaching out to their target customers. But slowly and gradually with the help of social media they are now being able to make their presence felt among the people.
Apart from that Rakesh mentioned they don’t have any major challenge as for now. Both investments and their services are going quite smoothly.
According to Rakesh what is given into the society in terms of services that adds value as a whole, they get in return the double of that.
“If we keep aside the profit motive and completely devote ourselves in bringing change in our society and launching solutions for the persisting problems, things will soon be in favor of yours. In my scenario I never felt that because of financial reason by project will stop, I had in my mind that Goaid will bring change in India’s medical facilities and hence we are going on with our focus intact.”-Rakesh
“In business downfall in terms of finance can come at any moment, especially when it’s a startup but one should not start feeling negative and demotivated for the same. Along with this if you are making a team the number of people doesn’t matter, the team should be rock solid with similar motto.”- Rakesh
