This business has stepped up in the last few weeks as everything has progressed because of the growing need for people to stay indoors. Now that there has been a need for people to get their groceries without needing to go out into public, Instacart has been leaned on quite a bit. 

What is the need are you focusing on?

This addresses the need for people to get the things they need from the luxury of their own homes.

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19?

I believe the best adaptations have been the use of Zoom. Zoom has allowed their site to be used by everyone without any cost and has easy accessibility.

What is your profession?

Undergraduate Student

Where are you located (country)?

United States

Where are you located (region)?

  • North America

Which industry do you work in?

  • Arts/Entertainment

Are you aware of any open source efforts, hackathons or other collaborative efforts related to your submission? Are you participating in these efforts?

I believe there are a few different companies and businesses doing the same thing because I believe Instacart is only available in a few places in the US.
