£20,000 boost for Deliveroo rider to develop startup business - the Magic Suction Mug

Kacper Serafin has ambitions to create his own designs for a range of coffee mugs and kitchen appliances that can stick to the table. 

A Manchester Deliveroo rider has secured a £20,000 investment to develop his startup business – the Magic Suction Mug.

Kacper Serafin secured the investment through Deliveroo’s ‘Big Pitch’ competition.

 

The Dragon’s Den-style initiative saw riders present their business ideas to a panel of Deliveroo’s investors and the CEO and founder of Deliveroo, Will Shu. The panel selected the pitches of three riders to receive investment and support the growth and success of their startups.

Kacper’s successful business pitch centered around a coffee mug which can’t be knocked over. The idea came to him after he accidentally spilled coffee all over his work notes whilst he was teaching himself coding and design.

At the time he was working in an internet sports shop warehouse during the day and studying at night, fuelled by a lot of coffee.

Running his own internet business has always been Kacper’s dream, and he’d previously bought and sold products on eBay to gain some experience.

In order to give himself more time to focus on his business idea, Kacper quit his 9-5 job and began to ride for Deliveroo, seeking more freedom and choice over working hours. He used his earnings to fund a trip to China, where he found a supplier to manufacture the mug, who he still works with now.

 

Kacper is still packing the parcels and organising every aspect of the business, and the £20,000 Deliveroo investment will help him develop his marketing plans. His business has gone from strength to strength, growing 260 per cent in the last year alone, and Kacper has ambitions to create his own designs for a range of coffee mugs and kitchen appliances that can stick to the table.

Kacper said:I came to the UK just with hand luggage and £260 in my pocket. I was not an entrepreneur with money, I was just a young man with a simple idea and an ambition to build a better life for myself.

“To anyone starting a new venture I would tell them that they don’t need lots of money or special skills to start a new business, but you have to get started and keep trying even if you have knock backs.

“All you need is to take a leap first, work hard and eventually the big results will come to you. You won’t be able to get there without taking that calculated risk at the start.”
