Imagine being able to tell your grandkids that you helped put some of the first robots on Canadian sidewalks.
About the Team
At Tiny Mile, we are convinced that autonomous vehicles will be the next big revolution and that delivery robots will be the first to experience mass adoption. Our team consists of a diverse group of people coming from all walks of life. We have people from Uber ATG; some have built billion dollars robotics companies; others come from quirky backgrounds and love robotics.We're backed by amazing investors who believe in our team going after a huge market. We're about to hit an inflection point in our company. Come pick a seat in our rocket ship and strap on. We're about to take off.
Why it Matters
Last-mile is the highest polluting segment. Given the continuous rise of e-commerce, it is expected the total carbon emissions will increase 30% by 2030 because of the last-mile. Our robots not only have zero emissions but use as little electricity as a light bulb.
People spend on average 10 hours running errands, going grocery, etc each week. If delivery was reliable, instantaneous and cost cents it would free people from carrying these tasks. If there are 2.93 million people in Toronto, we would be giving back 29.3 million hours to people to spend with their families or what they care about.
Imagine a small bookstore be able to deliver their books for cents, to the entire city in half an hour or less. Transportation has always been the backbone of the economy and delivery robots will ease trade and foster unprecedented economic growth.
During this pandemic, we are helping keep small businesses in business while also keeping their customers safe.
