College books, just a click away
For students who have just stepped into college, a book bank could be a valuable resource. With the aim of helping students, Reach Book Bank has created an exclusive online facility that would help students use and access reference books.
An online-only company, www.reachbookbank.com, is the brainchild of Shweta S., a young entrepreneur. “I explored the possibility of creating a web-based book bank which would be able to offer value to students, but at the same time generate profits,” she says. So the young entrepreneur identified an area relevant to students, and also made sure it made sense as a business model. Reach Book Bank uses technology to lower the cost of running a book bank and passes this benefit onto students. “All our books are at warehouses outside the city where rental costs are very low.” However, once customers started acknowledging the advantages, they slowly began recommending the facility to friends. All the business is over phone or e-mail. They take orders for books and deliver them at people’s homes or colleges within a day or two. Reach also has a separate charity section. All books they receive as donations, are made available free of cost to deserving students, through their website and delivery network. For information, call, 9176669301 or 9884499301.
