How did it start in 2020?

The founders had the experience of working with several NGOs that made them to the idea of diminishing child labor. In their quest to understand the root cause, they realized that the parents of these children themselves are mostly uneducated and live a nomadic life, guided by the levels of development taking place in their surroundings.

It is then, Mr. Saurav Kumar felt that with Broomees, something more could be done than just fair wages. It is an attempt to organize this highly unorganized sector of maids and domestic servants in our country as well as to provide these people the dignity they deserve, and probably a sense of security for their children to continue with their education.

Here is a quick overview

Revenue Model

The helpers are hired on a monthly, annually, or bi-annually basis. After the end of a contract, workers are paid.

Competition

The potential competition for this domestic helping startup is online databases like WorkIndia & Apna that work as B2B companies to provide databases to other companies. Other than that, local agencies for maid hiring are also a competition but to uncertainty in training and background checks, the credibility lies with Broomees.

Certain startups like ChefKart (working only to provide chefs to households) are also a potential competition. With respect to the training of the helpers, which is the USP of the startup, there is no direct competition.

Broomees Funding

The founders did not stake any money from their own pockets. This Delhi-based star startup started with zero investment as Broomees commenced revenue generation from its first year itself thanks to the expanded market that domestic helpers come with. A personal friend of one of the founders invested INR 10 lakhs in the startup that was only used post 9 to 10 months of operation of Broomees.

The startup has raised a total of US$ 600k in its two rounds from 100x.vc by Sanjay Mehta, 2am VC, Magic Fund, and Dholaki Dholakia Ventures by Dravya Dholakia.

Broomees has raised a total of IN₹ 1 Cr from the sharks of Namitha Thapar of emcure , Aman Gupta of BoAt, and Peyush Bansal of lenskart.

Expansion Plans

The current plan is to expand to other metro cities in India, starting with Bangalore.

SWOT Analysis

The strength of this service startup lies in its technology used to match helpers with customers and the training provided to the helpers, along with the extensive background verification that is performed by the team at Broomees.

The weakness is that there is a lot of dependency on the Composure of the workers.

The opportunity is incredible as this startup can be extrapolated to many other markets like patient care, pet care, etc.

The threat is that as the startup grows, seeing its success other competitors may arrive and they may spoil the market. That is why Broomees aspires to expand to all the metro cities in India as soon as possible.
