Thank you so much Prof. Engro is contributing massively to the country’s economic growth and I hope we will be able to talk about it in class some day 🙂
This is awesome Saumya! Had heard about Dabbawala’s back home and also saw them in a couple of movies 🙂 Thank you for capturing the process so creatively.
Thank you for your post Lior. It is inspiring to see how different industries are getting ‘Uber-ized’. I find Instacart extremely convenient and sometimes may be willing to pay a few bucks extra; however, I agree with you on the customer reach and profitability piece. I know that prices on Instacart are higher than those in store and on top, they charge a delivery fee. Sounds like a lot to me and I will be shocked if they aren’t making profits despite those premiums. What is your assessment of the Instacart consumer? Do you think they are price-elastic?
Excellent assessment Charanya! Sounds very similar to what has been happening to PIA (Pakistan International Airlines) as well. I agree with Charlie that privatization should be the key focus. It is surprising how many buyers in and outside India would be interested in acquiring this. With increased travel traffic, airline industry has become a much more interesting space. What is more important (and what we agree for PIA as well) is to bring the airline to a certain operationally efficient state and then resell at a high value vs. selling it for peanuts in the current state. Hope the government, at some point, agrees to sell it to Tata.
