The world is going through a time of uncertainty. We are finding problems which we never thought would be problems. We want to help.
Our mission is to revolutionise the online shopping industry, to allow the elderly, vulnerable and self-isolating the best opportunity to shop online.
Jason, from Colchester, is a software engineer by day and a problem solver by night. The idea came about when he was struggling to find shopping slots for his family, some falling into the vulnerable category.
‘I was spending hours online trying to reserve spaces, so I designed a website which automated the process. Initially, this was for my family and friends, but I thought it would be nationally beneficial for those elderly, vulnerable and isolating.
Sabrina, from Eastcote, was a previous 2018 Apprentice Candidate and founder of My Tennis Events and Active Dragons. Sabrina joined Jason to help scale the project, and allow those most in need to benefit from having this service.
‘My grandparents couldn’t leave the house and my family are isolating so we couldn’t deliver her food shop this week. Using Shopping Slot, I was able to book her a next day delivery slot from Iceland and was so grateful. I want Shopping Slot to become a national brand to help others in need.’
