RentSetGo’s take on sharing economy exclusively with CNBC

The Sharing Economy is revolutionizing the way we work today! Coming right from a talk with CNBC, Shruti Ajmera Reddy our Founder at RentSetGo -the only Indian company to be a part of this interview- tells you how it all came about!

“RentSetGo came out of a personal pain point and evolved into something really massive  looking at the rate at which we are growing today! We wanted to head out for a biking trip, we didn’t know what bikes to buy and what kinds are available in the market and the price points were insanely high for us to do it ourselves.” This is what pushed her to set foot into a market that’s valued today at 15 Billion Dollars and expected  to grow to 335 Billion Dollars by 2025.

Talking about how the market in India would adapt to such a system she believes that renting has always been a latent need in a value conscious economy like India.

Having started its operations already in Mumbai and Pune, when asked if expansion is on the cards she says “Geographically we are looking to enter in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities, specially cities that are hub spots for tourism”

Sharing economy or sharing as a concept is not new, it has been around for ages Shruti explains. Trust in such a scenario works as a prime factor that drives companies such as AirBnb, Uber, etc. in the sharing economy space. So how do they do it? By leveraging technology to build a platform that identifies behavioral patterns among its users. She says “using data analytics, we map consumer behavior on our platform, we then assess and assign an internal credit score and based on that we carry out inspections and transactions.”

With already receiving more than 1000 app downloads in just a few weeks and a 300% month-on-month growth, RentSetGo is definitely out to prove a point “Sharing Economy is here to stay!”

The Great Escapade #3 – Ride to Kondhana Caves

One of our own – Satyam, went to the Karjat ride this Sunday and he had an amazing experience and shared his experience with us:

“It was a super awesome day where we rode for 20-25 kms and trekked uphill and back for close to 6 kms. The sights from the top of the trek – Kondhana Caves are amazing and what made it even more awesome was the dampner to everyone’s well planned Sunday-Mumbai rains! The ride that I went on at Karjat was a beautiful one and I would not even think twice about going there again! The food is awesome, the route is beautiful and the new people you meet are amazing!”

Also known as MTB or ATB, these are sturdy bicycles all made to make your rides across mountain ranges or unpaved environments thrilling! Their construction is different from normal bikes due to the inclusion of suspension on the frame and fork, larger tires, more durable heavy duty wheels, more powerful brakes, and lower gear ratios needed for steep grades with poor traction.
