I am a developer and plan to make a Uber like app to fulfil the courier request less than $10. Any one interested to join in any way? Any comments?

Put together your business plan, and then make serious offers to secure the talent you need.

also you should have a plan on how you're going to create such a platform which is not that easy.

you'll be needing alot of resources for this you can read out some articles like

why startup fails and how to run a successful business

i would advice you to acquire a white label courier software as something like this will save you both time and money and will help you focus on something much important like your business growth.

remember your first 1-2 years are the most important and you going to have to work 10x as hard. Good Luck!

The price seems arbitrary as does making it an app instead of some other format (web, phone) that doesn't require a complex development cost. What does your market analysis show in terms of facts? What are couriers charging today? How much courier business is there to be had? Are customers complaining about anything specific with regard to courier service? Can you deliver things other services cannot? What is your point of distinction other than price? How will people learn about your business?

Thanks all for the answers. To answer Paul, The most distinct feature is it can automatically match the closet item against several locations(right now 2) courier set when requester sent the request from the app. The delivery is a must for regular e-commerce or small p2p sales activity such as kijiji, group buy etc. There is no detailed business / market analysis unfortunately due to the resource limitation and the inexperience on marketing to be frankly.

actually, starting a business is a good idea. I think so. You can create a partnership. But it is very difficult if you do not analyze your business.
