– Hmm ! Nice Idea

This guy found a problem with deliveries and he created a solution . Proof that their are so many niches it is unbelievable .

When Alper Ekmekci lived in Hoboken, he would often come home from work to find a notice of a package on his front door, but the post office or UPS center would be closed for the evening.After having missed many packages, Ekmekci decided to have them delivered to his office in Manhattan, but that didn’t work out much better. Once he had his computer delivered there but it was lost within the company’s in-house mailing system.After days of searching, Ekmekci recovered the package but had to spend $50 on a taxi to transport himself and three large boxes back to Hoboken, where he carried them up three flights of stairs.

That adventure led the 29-year-old financial analyst for JP Morgan Chase to leave his job and create his own company, Doorman Online LLC, which hand-delivers packages when working folks are actually home.
