Buddyler: “We Want to Make Life Easier for People”

From school drop-out to startup founder: With Buddyler, Tristan von Tschirschnitz wants to provide a service that delivers just about anything to your door within an hour. We asked the young founder our Seven Questions.

Munich Startup: Who are you and what do you do? Please introduce yourself!

Tristan von Tschirschnitz: I’m Tristan, 20 years old and the founder of Buddyler. I quit high school in 2018 to make my dream of self employment come true.

Munich Startup: What problem does your startup solve?

Tristan von Tschirschnitz: Buddyler is an app you can use to have virtually anything delivered to your front door within an hour. That means you aren’t limited to specific stores or restaurants. The main problem we want to solve is the well-known fact that we often don’t have enough time or the opportunity to run all our errands.

Munich Startup: But that’s nothing out of the box!

Tristan von Tschirschnitz: It actually doesn’t exist in Germany in this form yet. There have been some attempts to get a similar service up and running, but none have kept going.

“At the moment, we’re trying to create a Buddyler community that will grow organically”

Munich Startup: What have been your three biggest challenges so far?

Tristan von Tschirschnitz: The biggest and most difficult challenge was definitely developing a system that makes ordering as easy as possible.

It’s safe to say the second biggest was the German “legal jungle.” A lot of consultations and investigations were necessary to understand it properly.

The third would be spreading the word about our app. We want to help as many people as possible with our app. At the moment, we’re trying to create a Buddyler community that will grow organically

Munich Startup: Where do you see your business in one year, and where in five years?

Tristan von Tschirschnitz: In one year, we want to be making life easier for people in Munich 24/7. Then in five years in all major cities in Germany and Austria.

Munich Startup: What do you think about Munich as a startup location?

Tristan von Tschirschnitz: It’s on the rise. In my opinion, Munich as a startup location is at the beginning of a long and successful journey to becoming a startup hotspot.

Munich Startup: Quick exit or staying power?

Tristan von Tschirschnitz: Staying power, please. I have fun actively managing Buddyler. I’ll gladly keep doing it for a good long time.
