From an idea to a fully functioning business in 10 days? Impossible? Well, Jantine Doornbos did it!
FoodDrop / Dropper
In 2016, every restaurant had their own delivery scooters that brought food to people’s homes. Jantine saw the opportunity to bundle these delivery services and improve their sustainability. In two weeks FoodDrop was born: a meal delivery service by bicycle. She did everything herself: the branding, the marketing, and the system that processed the orders.
After some time, Uber Eats and Thuisbezorgd started entering the delivery market and her position with FoodDrop was in danger. She decided to act and change the functionalities of the platform to a platform that delivered more than just food but everything from shoes to coffee. This meant the start of Dropper in 2019.
The business grew fast and big fueled by the first lockdown in 2020. It was an eventful time for Jantine, which unfortunately ended in bankruptcy on the 1st of April, 2020. Although, it has not always been easy, she can’t give up on entrepreneurship and is now launching a number of startups to find out which way of doing business works best.
