Dispatch was recently named to CNBC’s Upstart 100 list of up-and-coming startup companies from around the world. My first reaction was “Wow, this is amazing!” It feels great to be included in a list of promising startups. And, for this list to include companies from around the world, well that’s just incredible. It wasn’t all that long ago that we were just a few people and a few delivery vehicles. So to be included in this list is really humbling and exciting.
When my business partner Andrew Leone and I first dreamt up the idea for Dispatch, we were focused on a gap in the distribution chain. Specifically, Andrew noticed the amount of time and money that service-based small businesses were wasting every time one of their skilled technicians had to leave a jobsite to pick up a part or tool they needed.
