Delhivery, a Delhi-based logistics and supply chain service, has collaborated with Startup Réseau, a Mumbai-based startup accelerator, to start the Delhivery innovation lab.
The lab will exploit the startup community in India to launch logistics and supply-chain related solutions. The innovation lab will facilitate technology partnerships, proof-of-concept development with startups, and other strategic alliances.
“We work with multiple partners, to leverage their products and prototypes to improve our systems. This accelerator programme will make this process structured and open to a large community of tech entrepreneurs,” Kapil Bharati, co-founder and chief technology officer, Delhivery, said.
“Through this initiative, we are looking to collaborate with enterprising startups working on developing Machine Learning, Machine Vision, AI, and IoT solutions for pre-defined business cases” Bharati added.
“We have identified key business areas in which we are looking for solutions that are pilot-ready. We aim to discover interesting tech solutions for the logistics and supply chain industry,” Ajay Ramasubramaniam, founder and CEO, Startup Réseau, said.
Delhivery has started inviting applications for its inaugural cohort, which will go live in November 2021. Earlier this month, Delhivery had raised over $75 million in funding from Lee Fixel’s venture capital firm Addition. It is expected that Delhivery will make its public market debut before March 2022.
