The concept idea of KAI is to create an online marketplace for home made produce. To put it simply Kai wants to enable your granny to sell her scones online. There is currently a gap in the market between the normal food service providers who sell on food delivery apps such as Just Eat, Uber eats and Grub hub. Then there are the domestic producers who sell at farmers markets, bake sales and town markets. Kai will fill that gap by creating a live marketplace for domestic producers to sell their freshly made produce to their own community online. The platform will allow people to list their own products on the platform, accept orders, manage payments, create delivery options through 3rd party couriers, review producers and educate the platform users in food prep safety. Kai will be a free to download APP on IOS & Android. There will be a desktop web app as well. We want the user experience to be seamless from taking the best pictures of the product, easily accepting & managing orders and most importantly having a transparent revenue model. This will enable for more people to engage with the gig economy and most importantly broaden the age demographic of the gig economy.
