If we look back over the last 10 years, there has been a larger and larger focus on on-demand delivery of goods and services. Whether that be Amazon Prime or Uber. There’s no argument that the most important thing is you get what you want, when you want it.
At least, that’s what I thought until I heard about Picnic — a year and a half old Dutch grocery delivery startup that is running on a different philosophy. And it’s paying off.
Picnic recently raised €100 million as part of their series B round. To put that into perspective, Uber raised $US37 million in series B.
The most interesting thing about Picnic is how they approach delivery.
