His love for Singapore's hawker food inspired him to create an app that delivers hawker food to your doorstep so you can skip the queue.

Rishabh Singhvi’s voice sounded a little strained from the last time we spoke over the phone for a pre-interview for this month’s Entrepreneur of the Month (EOTM) feature.

He lamented that the WhyQ team has been working hard to onboard new hawkers onto the platform and are busy coping with the surge in orders, due to the nationwide dining-in ban.

It was only the second week of the circuit breaker then, but the Covid-19 impact was clear to see. Now that the circuit breaker is extended for another month, there is bound to be deeper impacts.

For us, it has dampened our EOTM plans. We had already scheduled a face-to-face interview, a video interview, a photoshoot — the full works — with Rishabh, but they have now inevitably fallen through the cracks.

While the circuit breaker spells negative impacts for most businesses, WhyQ — like many food delivery firms in Singapore — are presented with a burgeoning opportunity amid this Covid-19 crisis.
