Below is our recent interview with Jaden Pereira, CEO & Founder of Tyltgo:
Q: What is Tyltgo? For those who have never heard of it, tell us something more?
A: Tyltgo provides merchants with same-day delivery and the ability to customize their post-purchase delivery experience through custom messaging and branding. Our customers range from meal kit providers to flower delivery to pharmacies. Anything you want to deliver, we can do it!
Q: What is your competence?
A: My competence in delivery experiences was zero before Tyltgo! I was just a guy who saw an opportunity to deliver food and other local goods to my fellow university students and then realized how much the merchants I was working with needed help with their delivery logistics. I saw a problem and knew I had to solve it!
Q: Why would merchants use Tyltgo?
A: Tyltgo allows our customers to focus on what they do best rather than on the delivery. We handle everything from building out branded delivery technology for our merchants’ websites to getting the drivers to deliver their goods to their customers. It saves our customers a lot of time, money and energy. Plus, it makes their customers really happy.
Q: You’ve recently raised CA$2.3 Million in Seed funding; can you tell us something more?
A: We’re very excited about the recent raise! We’re grateful to TI Platform Management, Y Combinator, Charles Songhurst and all the other investors in the round for believing in us. We’re going to be using this money to add more retailers, make our software better and build out our team. This is just the start.
Q: What are your plans for the second half of 2021?
A: Tyltgo is expanding across Ontario in 2021. We plan to add 100 additional retailers to our customer base.
We’re also going to be doubling our team. So if you’re looking for a job in sales or engineering, check out our careers page!
