Kanga, an on-demand crowdsourced delivery platform, will launch in Atlanta on March 26 and is hiring drivers. The app-based service connects individuals, drivers and retailers for local shipping  needs. Users place an order with a retailer and then a network of approved drivers bid to make the delivery.

Kanga will be available on all iOS and Android devices. Routing status and shipment tracking will also available via web interface. Following launch, the company plans to expand throughout the Southeast during 2014, based on consumer demand. Kanga’s headquarters is on West Peachtree Street in Midtown.

The startup, jointly led by  entrepreneurs Scott Miller of Payleap and Everett Steele of Baby Robot Industries, received $1 million in funding.

“As an entrepreneur and investor specializing in the payments industry, I know there is immense opportunity in connecting small businesses and online stores with their customers,” says Scott Miller, co-founder and lead angel investor of Kanga. Miller, whose previous startup, Payleap, was acquired by Atlanta based Acculynk in 2012, is confident in the future of the company, “With this round, Kanga will be able to connect merchants with buyers in a seamless fashion, making the local delivery process easier and more efficient than ever.”
