This has been ideated and conceptualized by Pulkit Ahuja, a serial entrepreneur, inventor, and owner of multiple patents and author of two books. In a statement, Ahuja said, “Proxgy started as a dorm room service conceptualized for the elderly and other high risk-prone individuals as a pilot in New Delhi during the coronavirus lockdown, wherein these people who were at a higher risk could stay safe at home while their younger proxgies navigated the city for them live using an off the shelf WhatsApp video call, helping them with their daily chores.”
Initially, This was conceptualized to help the elderly and high-risk individuals as a pilot in Delhi, India, during the COVID-19 lockdown. With Proxgy, these individuals can stay safe at home while their younger and fitter proxgies navigate the area live from them. Pulkit Ahuja, further stated that the concept received a lot of acceptance and success on its initial team.
The team is now expanding its services into multiple cities of India for different verticals. They are doing dedicated tasks like virtual travel, shopping, elderly care, remote KYC, real estate viewing, car services, and other generic jobs and services.
