Ethiopia startup launches first bicycle delivery platform in Addis Ababa

Tikus Delivery

Tikus delivery launches the first bike delivery platform in the capital with an aim of disrupting the workings of the current delivery system.

Owned by Avenir Technologies, the Addis Ababa-based startup offers on-demand bicycle delivery services and is looking to empower 1,000 unemployed youth. The company purposefully looks to accomplish this by supporting local businesses while developing new ways for people to live, work and earn.

Tikus connects customers with their favorite restaurants saving them the inconvenience of going through the hassle. One can utilize the Tikus platform on its Android, iOS or even place a phone call to 9133. Ordering procedures are quite similar regardless of the avenue chosen.

Tikus has received support and assistance from ‘The BRIDGES programme’ – part of the Mastercard Foundation’s Young Africa Works Ethiopia, a supported initiative implemented by First Consult PLC. Tikus will create jobs for over 1000 young men and women while delivering over 200 delivery bicycle messengers throughout the city in its first phase. Young people can also take loans from microfinance institutions to own their own bikes at a 10% down payment.

Restaurants across the capital will benefit from increased revenues, success, and reachability opening doors to an entire city. A mobile app that is highly interactive yet rich in features easily allows restaurants to accept, receive, and process orders in real-time. Data is then collected and compiled to equip the restaurant with immersive analytics on its sales revenues.
