Deliveroo whets investor appetite

HamburgerDeliveroo, the app which brings a high-end approach to take-away night, has secured $100m to further drive expansion.

This latest funding round was led by DST Global, with contribution from co-investors Greenoaks Capital, Accel, Hummingbird Ventures, and Index Ventures. Deliveroo has now raised $200m to date and, since the beginning of 2015, has increased daily orders ten-fold.

Renowned for its more discerning menu, Deliveroo brings restaurant dining into the home. Founded in London just two years ago, the company launched today in Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Melbourne, and Sydney. Speculation now abounds as to whether Deliveroo could become the UK’s next Unicorn.

“The Deliveroo team are dedicated to providing great food delivery experience for their customers, restaurant partners, and drivers”, said DST Global founder Yuri Milner. “We hope this new round will support their continued growth”.
