Abhiraj Bhal, co-founder and CEO of Urban Company, on Wednesday talked about consumers' safety concerns and how COVID-19 will impact professionals working in the gig economy.
On Monday May 17, the nationwide lockdown was extended up to May 31, that means India will be stayed shut for a little over two months in its fight against COVID-19. From the consumer point of view barring the containment zones where only bare essential continue to be available, everywhere else a modicum of normalcy will be returned.
Urban Company was setup in 2014. It offers a host of services including beauty and grooming, plumbing, electrical repair and most recently started offering disinfection services. It has 27,000 service provider partners and is available in 22 cities.
