Getting in that CEO or CTO position doesn’t happen overnight. Everybody started somewhere – be it a dusty garage like Jobs and Wozniak, a cluttered dorm room like Zuckerberg or, like many young minds of today, in a coworking space without money but a mind full of ideas. In this new series on Silicon Canals we interview successful entrepreneurs about their road to success: what does it take to get to the top, especially at a young age? First up: Daniel Gebler of on demand online supermarket Picnic.
On demand startups are booming. The convenience of getting your stuff delivered where and when you want, is getting more popular everyday in the digital age. While UberEats, Deliveroo, TakeAway and Foodora battle it out when it comes to delivering your dinner, Picnic conveniently delivers your groceries as well. Picnic is not a delivery service for existing supermarkets; it’s a supermarket that only exists online. Because of the low overhead, Picnic can deliver at regular, affordable prices.
