Aadit Palicha and Kaivalya Vohra are the founders of Zepto, a start-up from India that promises to deliver groceries in less than 10 minutes. The firm is just one of many businesses to join the wave of what's known as "quick" or "instant" commerce.

The childhood friends founded the business in July 2021 — right in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. Operations started two months later.

Zepto says it's now adding 100,000 new users daily.
