"Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations."

  • Aarigo is an Hyperlocal Marketplace for services that helps to connect all types of local service providers.

    The customer seeking a particular service done needs to browse that service over the website and then the list of trusted service providers is displayed available in your locality and then customer can choose the service provider on the basis of price, quality & review.

    It is an two way platform where a customer can find the services of their needs and a service provider can list their services and directly sell them to the target customers.

    May it be professional services or handyman services, Aarigo offers an unique platform and make it easier to sell.We are currently providing services in 35 categories that include beauty services at home, yoga, Home service and many more .

  • When we grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is. Just live your life the way it is try to have nice family life, save money and for this life we give our best and work hard to get a good professional MNC job and then finally life ends.

    That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader. Everything around you was made up by people that were no smarter than you they have change it and influenced us to make things better. Build your own things that other people can use it. Learning from all this, and tempting to serve the customer and make it easier for us to get along, Aarigo.com was established.One of the biggest problems we faced was vendor's & customer's disappointments from past internet companies.

    There have been cases where a vendor has to be paid a bold monthly fees just be listed on the platform with no guarantee of any sale. Customers used to book a service provider despite not knowing the criminal background and expertise/experience.

    Therefore it was a tough task to educate the vendors and customers and make them believe in a completely new concept. Each and every vendor listed Aarigo.com has gone through a deep background check along with proper documentations. Also the validation and quality check was not a day’s work. It took almost two months for us to validate every provider and service on Aarigo.com.

  • 'People with Passion can change the World'.Aarigo is not just about finding right service provider for customer and getting service done,Although we do that well. Aarigo is about something more.

    Its core value is that we believe that people with passion can change the world for the better. I personally feel Anyone can create Marketplaces but It takes a true innovator to create an experience.

  • Well currently we are bootstrapped start-up .Well we follow this formula Bootstrapping + Lean Startup = Low-burn Startup. Initially we did self-funding (sweat equity, credit cards, savings, etc.) and working our way towards sustainability through customer acquired funding.
  • Well I really want to do something more difficult which can change the world.And as per our start-up concern a lot of people in our industry Specially who runs the Marketplace couldn't manage to do that from almost decade which we did in just 3 months .

    And the reason they were able to do that was that they've had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people."And We are confident that will leave every customer with a smile...

  • In start-up as compare to corporate jobs you get more responsibilities,More opportunities also able to do lot of different things &You'll be instilled with the value of hard work, ownership, and self-sustainability.Well its founder responsibilities to be transparent,treat each employee as an "A Player" & focus on your core values this are the things can make your employee stay back.

    80%of start-up culture is depend on how the core leaders are so If a founder is competitive, the company will be more aggressive and competitive. As a founder, the things that set you apart become your company's competitive advantages.

  • You should have lot of passion whatever you are doing. So If you don't really love it or fun doing it you will give up. Don't just follow the trend be different this are the only way for success which I follow.
  • Always challenge yourself and go beyond your limits.Do what you care about & Give yourself permission to take risks.
