Concluding Thoughts

Startups that fulfill a basic service are much-needed. After the debut of Cleanry, a startup in Karachi that also deals with laundry, entrepreneurs from other cities can tap into a potentially huge market that can be theirs for the taking. Here’s to hoping Dhobi Online, Dhobi Saab and Cleanry expand to other cities or spur other new startups into action.
