Zypp Electric, a tech-enabled electric vehicle logistics company based in Gurugram, has announced that it will hire and train 3,000 women as delivery partners by the end of this year.
It currently has a workforce of 3,000 and is working on the long-term goal to have 50 per cent women in its workforce. The company hopes that the new partners will empower and enhance its sustainable delivery capabilities.
Rashi Agarwal, co-founder and chief business officer at Zypp Electric, said that she wants to create more opportunities for women in this sector and believes that only an inclusive future is a sustainable future in any organisation. Additionally, the company offers both men and women opportunities to change their lives.
Akash Gupta, CEO, Zypp Electric, said that EVs will create more opportunities for women training partners to step into the gig delivery workforce because e-scooters are relatively easy to drive and have gearless controls with speed calibration. These are more comfortable to handle and drive through the roads without any trouble for all gender types.
In September 2021, the Company successfully raised around $7 million in a Series A round funding from 9unicorns and Anthill Ventures and has taken the total to $12.5 million by now.
Zypp Electric was founded in 2017. One of its long-term aims is to make India a carbon free country with the help of an ecosystem of electric vehicles and EV technology.
