This year, companies operating in the fintech and medtech sector fared exceedingly well, while segments such as travel and foodservice suffered. However, with the vaccine now rolling out, we can expect things to get better. The foodservice industry is also recovering as Deliveristo, the Italy-based food delivery platform dedicated to B2B has secured a notable €4.5M in series A funding round.
Recovering from COVID and further expansion
The latest investment of €4.5M in Deliveristo was led by United Ventures, an Italian venture capital fund specialising in digital technologies. This equity investment also completes the deal the startup began in July 2020 with a group of other investors, including Gellify, Doorway, IAG, Seven – Angelomario Moratti, and Metrica – Michele Novelli.
The fresh funds will help the company get ahead of the current situation. It will also support the company’s proprietary platform’s technological development and aid in expanding its organisational structure, both nationally and in Europe.
Ivan Aimo, CEO of Deliveristo, comments, “We are extremely pleased with the achievement of this Series A round of investment. The food industry is experiencing a moment of great change, and we want to contribute more and more to its innovation, providing restaurateurs and suppliers with the technology they need to simplify their business. The entry of United Ventures represents an important moment of growth for Deliveristo, we have been aligned on the vision from day one, and we are sure that it can be the necessary added value to achieve the ambitious goals that the company has set.”
