Innovation seems to be the buzzword in building brands and businesses. Now, Sirish, who is in his 11th grade from Sishya School in Chennai, has started a website completely dedicated to pets called Cotingo. We are sure that this is a good idea as dogs and cats never really go out of fashion. Humans love pets and pets need humans and business ideas like these are only going to help us deal with our pets better. It is sure going to make a pet’s life easier when services like these are available at our fingertips.
We caught up with Sirish and he told us about his new business. Sirish is an animal lover and is trying to make Cotingo work even with school and other activities and is trying his best to collaborate with pet stores and animal welfare groups. Sirish is a dog lover and since his childhood, he always wanted to be a veterinarian, but now wants to be a businessman. The reason he came up with a site dedicated to pets is when he came across pet dating while watching Discovery channel, which slowly snowballed into a complete pet portal.
“Cotingo is a site designed to pet owner’s information and services about pet sitting, pet day care, dog walking, pet food suppliers and pet meet-ups. It is a platform where owners can interact with service providers and then come to an agreement. We are a group of animal lovers.Cotingo has many services. The USP of our site is it is a one stop destination for all kinds of pet needs,” says Sirish
Since he is an animal lover, we asked him whether India is suitable for all breeds. He said that India is a country that is suitable for all breeds, but it also depends on how well the owner takes care of the dog. Sirish, who just started this company a few weeks back is also interested in music and plays six instruments and knows beat boxing. At present, Cotingo is taken care by Sirish. They also have technological experts and a sales representative. He is looking at a full-fledged office in Chennai soon.
