Every week ILQ features a different Qatari startup in a segment called ‘Startup of the Week’. Qatar has some of the most creative, unique, and impactful startups in the region. We cover different startups across various industries in Doha, from fashion and beauty to food and dining, to health and education, and more! This week we’re featuring Jaldi, a Qatar-based startup that provides quick and simple home services through an efficient online platform! 

In need of reliable services for your home? Jaldi can help you with that! A new startup founded this year, Jaldi — which means quick — offers a reliable way for users to book top-rated professionals, shows the progress of your bookings, and provides a rating system so that quality service can be maintained for other users. You can book services through Jaldi’s app, website or even their WhatsApp number!

The company was founded by Khalid Khan, Director of Redco International. Khan started Jaldi after being inspired by applications he used for home services in London. He saw a need for this kind of service in Qatar’s market. 

“I feel I only grow as a person when I’m learning something and starting and running a business is a great way to learn about whatever business you’re about to start,” Khan said. “I’m constantly on the look for some new business I could implement because I feel myself grow through failures which is addictive. I knew I wanted to learn more about application development and running a tech business. Now, I’m learning about advertising which will inevitably benefit other aspects of my life. So the synergies are satisfying.”

Currently, the services Jaldi provides are: 

  • Home and office cleaning
  • Handyman
  • Electrical services
  • Painting services
  • Plumbing services including drains, faucets, toilets, and garbage disposals
  • Fixing and installing air conditioners
  • Mason and carpentry services
