Princeton Deliveries

Shield.jpg

We intend to provide more restaurant and grocery store delivery options to the Princeton community by managing their delivery logistics. We believe that restaurants of towns like Princeton do not want to deal with the additional cost and hassle of delivery because they only generate marginal (if any) returns due to the low population density. If delivery is done in a more centralized way the decreasing costs per restaurant can provide a benefit for restaurants themselves (lower risk, less hassle), the community (more delivery options and jobs) and at the same time generate profit. For this purpose we will utilize machine learning techniques to come up with ways to maximize efficiency and minimize costs. As a next step, the same infrastructure could be used to deliver instantly other things like groceries or local mail.

    My name is Michail Alifierakis, but friends call me Michalis. I am a PhD in the department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Princeton University where I do research for the past 5 years. My project is about modeling the properties of conductive elastomers in order to understand how we could use them in real applications. I am very passionate about entrepreneurship and want to understand how to implement the scientific method to discover repeatable and scalable business models that can be implemented by startups or established businesses.
